Welcome to the Bird Library, feeding the birdbrains of Virginia. Concerned about bird literacy? So are we. We believe in biodiversity and welcome birds of all colors, shapes, and species … even squirrels.

Bird Library, where the need to feed meets the need to read.

Our live feed is in its infancy. Youtube requires us to have 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours in a 12 month period before they will allow us to embed the video feed. So please click through to youtube and watch and if you enjoy it subscribe to our channel so we can enable this feature in the future.
