I’m always amazed by scientists who LOVE their organisms. And bird people really take this to a whole new level.
In 1918 Congress passed the Migratory Bird Treaty Act to protect birds from wanton killing. To celebrate the centennial, National Geographic is partnering with the National Audubon Society, BirdLife International, and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology to declare 2018 the Year of the Bird.
And celebrate, the year of the bird!
