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!

Hello, Columbia Canary Club members.  Here we are in December and sadly we can't have our traditional Christmas banquet.  I'm sure going to miss the yummy food – turkey, potatoes and gravy, corn casserole, tamales, special salads, pies and all the rest of the deliciousness.   Instead, please join us for a zoom meeting at our regular time,  Dec.13.  Board meeting will be at 1:00 and general meeting at 2:00.  I will be sending out the Zoom access code in a separate email as the meeting time approaches.  Last month, it was just great to see everyone and catch up on each others lives.


Ballots were counted last month and the officers for the year are as follows:  Vice President – Maymelle,  Secretary – Beth,  Treasurer – Carol,  Board – Sandy, Hector, Bill,  Show Chair –  Kris and Dan will act as co-chairs.  Please note there was no one elected to be our president.  If you have any interest in being president, please step forward.  We need someone to fill this position starting in January.


Please be aware that it is time to renew your membership.  It is very easy to do. Get on our club website and fill out the application.  You can either pay by PayPal or send in a check to the club mail box.  Also, be sure to call or message Norma and get your bands ordered.  She has them and can mail them out to you, but you must be current on your membership to get them.


I want to thank everyone for allowing me to lead this group for the past 2 years.  It has been very rewarding and at times challenging with the absence of meetings.  Hope this season is everything you want it to be.
