For some reason pale red is an extremely attractive color when it is applied to feathered creatures. Why? Who knows? What matters is that pink birds are amazing. Whether you like big wading birds, parrots, finches, wood-warblers, or any other kind of bird you know that when you see one that is pink that you will remember it. There is just something about pink birds that make birders take notice like no other color on a bird. It is strange but who are we too judge?

Interestingly, despite pink often being associated with femininity there seems to be no shortage of male birders getting excited over pink birds. So while Mother’s Day is this weekend we here at 10,000 Birds feel that pink birds can be all inclusive. (Though if you want to tell your mother about the awesomeness that is Pink Bird Weekend as a Mother’s Day gift that she will surely thank you for we certainly won’t complain.)

Sit back, relax, and enjoy. Pink Bird Weekend starts…now!
