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

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.

If it’s yellow, let it mellow.
If it’s brown, it’s probably a sparrow.

Look what the migration dragged in. It’s a Rose-Breasted Grosbeak!

Are they hiding something? Are they growing beaks?
