 “Come enjoy our pristine and reflective setting designed for bird watching, now the fastest growing outdoor activity in America! We’re installing an interactive
song station as a learning tool for all ages. Please join us!” said Mia Martori, founder
of Mia’s Place.

The Institute of EcoTourism and Kunzang Palyul Choling (KPC), the local Buddhist community,  partnered in a blessing ceremony of Mia’s Place, a wildlife habitat certified by the National Wildlife Federation. This ceremony took place at 2:00 p.m., at Mia’s Place located on the creek at Los Abrigados Resort. 

National Bird Day was celebrated with a blessing for Mia's Place, January 5, 2007 at the Institute of Ecotourism by joining in various fun activities, scheduled from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Special events included: create gourd bird feeders, meet "Red" a rescued parrot with Tara’s Babies Animal Welfare, how to attract backyard birds, a presentation on the Amitabha Stupa and much more.

National Bird Day is an important vehicle for educating the public about the plight of the world’s birds, both in captivity and in the wild. It also encourages the public to appreciate our own native birds as well as the birds of other nations and to commit to protecting all birds against cruelty and extinction.W
