It's National Bird Day!

Well, simply put, birds rule, and we love them!! (If you can't already tell) The wide range of colors in their feathers, the songs they sing, and how they freely soar in the sky have been sources of inspiration to humans for who knows how long.

Not only that, nearly 12 percent of the world's 9,800 bird species may face extinction within the next century. That's 1176 species...gone. Not to mention this includes 1/3 of the world's 330 parrot species. Raising awareness is crucial to helping these birds survive. Find out how you can get involved.

In honor of this day, we present to you bird modifications. I mean, if we run out of birds, we'll just have to start breeding them with other animals right?? I tease, I tease, enjoy!
