Celebrate the Joys and Benefits of Pet Bird Ownership with National Pet Bird Day on September 17!
History of National Pet Bird Day
Love pet birds? We do, too, which is why we created National Pet Bird Day, to be celebrated every year on September 17. National Pet Bird Day was founded by the Bird Enjoyment & Advantage Koalition (BEAK). Whether you’re a pet bird owner, or you just really like birds, you’re invited to join us in celebrating the countless joys and benefits of companion bird ownership.
According to the American Pet Products Association’s 2021-2022 National Pet Owners Survey, 8 percent of U.S. households own a bird, equating to 9.9 million households. Of these bird owners, the most cited benefit associated with owning a bird is that pet birds are fun to watch and have in the house, followed by the benefit of birds bringing love and companionship to their owners. National Pet Bird Day is our chance to squawk about pet birds and show the rest of the world what they’re missing.
Ready to Celebrate?
In observance of National Pet Bird Day, we invite you to take the myBird quiz, designed to match you with the right bird for your lifestyle. Quiz questions range from time and financial commitments, living arrangements and noise tolerance, to birds’ level of affection and expected lifespan; all key factors to consider before bringing home your feathered family member. Fun fact: since its inception, myBird has generated nearly 700,000 pet bird recommendations. That’s a lot of happy birds with happy humans!
If you’ve already found your soul bird, check out our handy locator tool, which can help you find avian veterinary care facilities near you.
Bird lovers are encouraged to share stories and photos of their birds and tweet them out to the world using the hashtag #NationalPetBirdDay. We’ve even created a downloadable toolkit for anyone interested in helping BEAK spread the word about the joys and benefits of bird ownership. Retailers, bird breeders and bird rescues can join in the celebration using this digital toolkit. Visit myBird on Facebook to access our National Pet Bird Day profile frame and fun contests leading up to the holiday.
Now, that’s enough chirping… Let’s BIRD!
