第一個鳥類節 (Bird Day)

一隻老鷹在天際遨翔。一隻知更鳥在樹上低吟。你知道生活週遭有哪些鳥類嗎?社會大眾從1894年月4日開始,對鳥類有了更進一步的認識,那一天是第一個「鳥類節」。這個節日是由賓州石油市 (Oil City) 的學校負責人查爾斯‧貝考克 (Charles A. Babcock) 所提議設立的。由於經常和植樹節 (Arbor Day) 一起合辦,鳥類節往往有盛大的慶祝活動。設立鳥類節的目的,是在於鼓勵群眾保育鳥類與欣賞鳥類。

A hawk soars in the sky. A robin sings in a tree. What do you know about the birds around you? The public learned a lot more about birds starting on May 4, 1894, the first observed Bird Day. The superintendent of schools in Oil City, Pennsylvania, Charles A. Babcock, suggested the holiday. Often combined with Arbor Day (which celebrates trees), Bird Day was widely celebrated, encouraging conservation training and awareness of birds for all.
