Ever since he was a boy, Theodore Roosevelt loved birds. One of his favorite places to watch birds was his family’s summer home in Oyster Bay, New York. There, he would sketch, identify, and collect the many birds of the area.
Roosevelt carried this passion for birds with him to the White House. As President, he created more than 50 federal bird reservations. In 1923, a bird sanctuary was established in Roosevelt’s name in Oyster Bay.
