第一个鸟类节 (Bird Day)

一只老鹰在天际遨翔。一只知更鸟在树上低吟。你知道生活周遭有哪些鸟类吗?社会大众从1894年月4日开始,对鸟类有了更进一步的认识,那一天是第一个「鸟类节」。这个节日是由宾州石油市 (Oil City) 的学校负责人查尔斯.贝考克 (Charles A. Babcock) 所提议设立的。由于经常和植树节 (Arbor Day) 一起合办,鸟类节往往有盛大的庆祝活动。设立鸟类节的目的,是在于鼓励群众保育鸟类与欣赏鸟类。

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.
