People can get involved in National Bird Day through birdwatching, studying birds, and other bird related activities. Many bird enthusiasts celebrate by adopting birds and educating future bird owners about the special issues involved with taking care of birds, including their “screaming, biting, constant cleanups, the need for daily interaction and a varied diet”. There are also bird drinking games including ‘bird date’ and other bird-related activities. Bird adoption is also a particularly important National Bird Day activity

Since 1979, bird lovers in the United Kingdom have also taken part in the annual Big Garden Birdwatch which is coordinated by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. This involves spending an hour counting the birds in your garden And gives scientists an insight into how well various species of birds are doing.
