About Pro Bird Rights

You know who’s got it rough in this world? Bird. Well, thankfully the account @probirdrights on Twitter is all things bird, all the time.

Human bird advocate Katie Goldin, who helps our feathered friends by running the account, had a standout year, asking the important questions like, "Hello, but bird is on a quarter??"
