May Note From the President


It is hard to believe that May is here already. I am just about finished with my canary breeding season. The last clutch of chicks is due to hatch this week, and then I am done. My Fife canaries have been very productive. My Border canaries have not. So goes the ups and downs of breeding.


If you are a canary breeder, I hope you have had a good season. If you breed other birds, I hope they are doing well too and that you are enjoying the hobby.


Our May meeting program will be on “Raising New Color Canaries”. Hector Diaz will be presenting it. There are so many amazing new colors of canaries I think it should be a great learning opportunity for all of us. Thank you, Hector.


I am also looking forward to Debbie Stout being our “Breeder on Display” this month. We will learn more about Debbie and her birds.


In July we traditionally have a picnic, either at someone’s back yard or a park. We are still looking for someone to host the picnic this year. More that one person can act as host. It means making arrangements in a park or at someone’s home. Let me know if that is something you are willing to do.


Remember you can join our meeting on May 13, either by zoom or in person. The zoom link will be emailed out a few days before the meeting. The Board meeting is 1:30-2:00 pm. The Show Committee is 2:00-2:30 pm and the General Club meeting runs 2:30 – 3:30, with refreshments following. You are welcome to attend all or any part of the meetings.


Happy May! Dan Pitney
