Bird Day

Hi Hamama Friends!

To all the bird lovers in our Hamama community . . . . today is 'Bird Day!!'

 

The first Bird day was celebrated over 100 years ago in 1894 by Charles Almanzo Babcock. Birds day is a day to admire our feathered friends as well as to talk about the ways that we can help preserve all bird species for future generations.

🐦 Some fun facts about birds:

 

  • Most Hummingbirds weigh less than a nickel²
  • There are about 10,000 known birds species³
  • Pigeons can recognize human faces²
  • Birds Communicate Using Sound and Color²
  • The penguin is the only bird that can swim, but not fly. It is also the only bird that walks upright¹
  • The chicken is the closest living relative to the Tyrannosaurus Rex¹

🐦 How to Observe Bird Day:

 

  • Be extra mindful of the birds in your yard and neighborhood and enjoy watching and listening to them.
  • If you have kids, try to have them identify birds by their song or appearance.
  • Share your favorite bird-watching experiences.
  • Promote habitat conservation and preservation using #BirdDay to post on social media.

🌱 Did you know that microgreens are great for your birds because the fiber tends to break down easier than full-grown plants & it cleanses their digestive tracts while giving them the right nutrients!

 

🌱 Microgreens are full of Omega 3’s, minerals and fiber, vitamins, and anti-cancer polyphenols.¹ You can read more about birds and microgreens on our Hamama Pets: Our Furry, Feathered, & Scaly Friends blog post!

Our very own Carolyn, shows a little extra love to her chickens by treating them to fresh microgreens served in a Papaya! Just look at how happy they are!

@hamama_greens Papaya + Hamama Microgreens = Very Happy Chickens!! 🐓🌱
