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!

October.  What a busy month for our club members! We are choosing which birds to show, training the show birds, grooming, deciding what birds and equipment to sell, making reservations for a sales table,  banquet and hotel.  I am getting excited and hope you are, too!  Next month's show is what we work for all year.  It is always a good thing to see if what we are breeding is in line with the standards of our particular bird variety.  It lets us know if we are on the right track of breeding the best birds possible and if not, how we can improve for next year.  It's a joy to get together with others who share our passion and “talk shop”.

 

You should have received a ballot for officers for next year. Please mark your vote and drop it in the mail to our club mailbox so it arrives before the meeting, or better yet, bring it in person to the meeting. Late votes will not be counted.  They will be tallied during the meeting and the officers serving next year will be announced.

 

Please bring any donations you have for the club sales table or raffle baskets to this meeting.  Baskets will be assembled during this meeting.  New items are best but if you are donating a used item, make sure that it is clean and in good condition. We want to have a good looking sales table for our club, one that represents our club well to the public coming to our show.

 

Last, but not least, this is the month of the baby show or also known as the “practice show”. If you don't know how to fill out a show tag, you will be able to learn how it's done. You are encouraged to bring some of your birds for a trial run at showing. Hector and Kris will have the cardboard show cages for purchase for colorbreds and finches. The black wood cages are still fine to use as well. The birds will be judged as they would be in a show. 

 

Looking forward to spending Sunday afternoon with you.
