about us

Headquartered in the Portland-Vancouver area, the Columbia Canary Club is a regional organization dedicated to the hobby of keeping and breeding canaries and other birds. Emphasis is placed on the dissemination of information for the care, feeding, breeding and exhibition of birds and offering support to bird fanciers.

The Columbia Canary Club was founded in January 1953 and was originally called the Colorbred Bird Club.  In 1954 the First Annual Show was presented with over 150 entries.  The Annual Canary and Finch Show continues to be the highlight every year.

Meetings are held monthly and often involve educational topics. Past meetings have featured visits from veterinarians as well as demonstrations on subjects such as breeding, banding, nutrition, housing, grooming and preparing for bird shows. A lot of snacking and socializing usually occurs as well!

We look forward to having you join us!

Because of the Easter holiday falling on the second weekend of April, our club approved meeting a week early, on April 5th.  Now, with the COVID-19 situation changing since last month, each officer and board member was contacted and asked their opinion as whether the club should proceed with the April meeting.  With a unanimous voice, the officers and board members agree that the April meeting will be canceled.   This decision is not taken lightly by the club's leadership team.  We want all of our members to be safe and healthy, and with that in mind, THERE WILL BE NO MONTHLY MEETING DURING APRIL.  We will look forward to our next meeting on May 3rd, also scheduled a week early to eliminate a conflict with Mother's Day.  In addition, THE MARCH 28TH SHOW COMMITTEE MEETING HAS BEEN CANCELED by our show chairman, Kris Rigdon.


Hopefully your breeding season is going well and you have many young birds hatching and feathering out.  I look forward to hearing how your year is going.  I see great pictures of birds on individual Facebook pages.  If you want to share them with all our members, put them on the club's Facebook page.  Jose Palafox will help you if you need a hand.  Also, be sure to check our club web page which Sharon McCadam updates regularly.


Until our May meeting – stay healthy and enjoy your birds.
