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).
