Welcome!

We are happy you found us and would like to extend an invitation for you to join our society of parrot-crazy folks!

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 quarterly. 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 in the Lawn Bowling Building near Greenlake in Seattle on roughly the 3rd Sunday of every month. Check out our Calendar for upcoming events or join our Meetup page to get notifications right on your phone!

Featured Flock Member

Bird Name: Dew Drop
Species:
Cockatiel
Native Habitat: Australia
Owner: Briana Thomson
Age:
7 years
Favorite Food: Potatoes, noodles, and rice.

 
Favorite Pastime: Tapping his head on things or talking to anything that is fabric related (blanket, towel, t-shirt, etc.). When I say talking, I mean cockatiel gibberish.

Interesting Story: I had two budgies that I had bonded with and trained for about a year, and I felt the need to expand my little bird family, so I went to Craigslist. I brought him home - not knowing much about cockatiels at all - and he wasn't what I had expected. He was scared of everything. Anyone could walk into a room and he would freak fly into walls. It made me deeply sad. BUT, over time, spending one-on-one time and bonding, earning each other’s trust... he opened his shell and let me in! Over the last three years I have worked with him. He still has his firecracker personality and bites without hesitation, but you can see the love in his eyes! Dewdrop went from my most misbehaved bird, to the easiest out of them all. I call him my adorable little jerk. He is just that. He is the core of our little family!
