Bird Day


An Avian Celebration


It’s that time again. The time to take up our binoculars and look to the sky! What’s that you see? Our fine feathered friends, soaring overhead? Not exactly. This time around we’re going to begin our Bird Day celebration with a bird that can’t fly…


The Common Ostrich

The common ostrich (Struthio camelus) is the largest living bird, with height up to nine feet tall and weighing well over two hundred pounds. 
It is the fastest land bird, capable of sprinting at speeds over forty miles per hour!
Ostriches are the most dangerous birds in the world. They have been known to kill large predators such as hyenas and lions with their powerful kicks and sharp claws.


The Bee Hummingbird

The bee hummingbird (Mellisuga helenae) is the smallest living bird, measuring less than two-and-a-half inches long and weighing less than a tenth of an ounce.
Bee hummingbirds eat up to half their body weight in food each day.
They spend a higher percentage of their lives flying than any other species.
