National Pet Bird Day

Love pet birds? Join us in celebrating National Pet Bird Day on September 17!

What is National Pet Bird Day?

Created in 2019 by the Bird Enjoyment & Advantage Koalition (BEAK), National Pet Bird Day is a time for bird lovers across the United States and beyond to celebrate the joys and benefits of owning a pet bird. Our goals for this special day, which takes place on September 17 each year, include:

  • Recognizing the many ways that pet birds enrich our lives
  • Educating current and potential bird owners about the responsibilities and commitments that come with having a companion bird
  • Uniting pet bird owners who share a commonality of loving birds
  • And most of all, showing our feathered friends all the love they deserve!

Whether you’re a current bird owner, are thinking of adding a pet bird to your home, or you simply have an appreciation for these amazing creatures, there are several ways to celebrate National Pet Bird Day. Here are some ideas:

Find out which types of birds may be best for your family

Pet birds’ personalities are as diverse as their colorings, and they each have their own needs and care requirements. Therefore, if you’re thinking of bringing a bird into your home, it’s important to choose one that will fit into your lifestyle. With various questions designed to help you narrow down the types of birds that may be right for you, our interactive pet bird quiz is the perfect place to start!
