We are happy you found us and would like to extend an invitation for you to join our society of parrot-crazy folk!
Founded in 1979, the Northwest Exotic Bird Society (NWEBS) is the
oldest bird club in the Puget Sound area. Our mission is the promotion
of responsible aviculture, education and support for exotic bird owners
and breeders. NWEBS meets monthly in Seattle presenting speakers,
activities, and events on a wide-range of bird topics and publishes a
newsletter bi-monthly. Many of our members also participate in
various birding activities ranging from backyard bird watching, raptor
banding projects, Christmas bird counts, wildlife rescue and
rehabilitation, and so forth. NWEBS is also the Washington State
affiliate of the American Federation of Aviculture (AFA).
If you are interested in parrots and pet birds, come on down. We would love to meet you!
We meet at the Woodland Park Lawn Bowling Building (map) in Seattle on the third Sunday of the month at 2:00 PM. Be sure to check our Calendar page for descriptions of upcoming events.
