WHO IS THE CHESTER COUNTY BIRD CLUB?
The Chester County Bird Club, Inc., established in 1986, is a not for profit organization whose goal is to help educate and encourage the betterment of all aspects of aviculture.
Our members range from the novice single pet owner to the experienced breeder of multiple species. Our goal is to provide a range of informative programs of interest to all our members. If you have a bird question, there’s sure to be someone in the club who will be happy to help you.
Some of the many benefits of CCBC membership:
We usually meet on the second Sunday of each month at the East Whiteland Township Building in Frazer, Pa., located on Route 401 just east of Route 202. There’s a brief business meeting followed by an educational program presented by local avian vets, reports from organizations like the AFA, species profiles by experienced breeders , fun avian related games and much, much more. Visitors are always welcome. It’s a good idea to confirm dates, times and program information by emailing Info@ccbirdclub.com.
Members are eligible to join the CCBC e-mail group at Yahoogroups.com. By addressing e-mail to the group, it’s received by all the members automatically – a way to keep in touch between meetings. It’s a good way to stay up-to-date on avian issues and events, tell stories, recount experiences, put out calls for help, or share any info of interest to the group.
Our quarterly newsletter keeps all members up to date on the latest aviculture news, including local events, birds for sale, and in-depth reports from organizations like the American Federation of Aviculture, the Association of Avian Vets, Bird Clubs of America and more. Members qualify for reduced advertising rates.
Our extensive library, available to all members, includes a wide range of books, videos, publications, and newsletters from national organizations and other local bird clubs. Most of these are in “on-line” form within our Yahoo Group.
The Club maintains a comprehensive list of avian veterinarians in the Delaware Valley area, as well as profiles of most popular pet bird species.
We take our educational mission very seriously! All too often beginning pet owners don’t realize the many demands of sharing their lives with an avian companion. Throughout the year, CCBC members present programs at pet stores, schools and other venues to spread the word about responsible pet bird ownership.
SHOW AND MART
Our Club had sponsored an annual bird show and mart for over 27 years. However at this time we are not in a financial position to continue this sponsorship. We hope to be back on track and able to continue with an annual show and mart sometime soon.
Social highlights of the year include our spaghetti dinner in February, our picnic and barbecue in July and a holiday party in December featuring a “Pollyanna” gift exchange that we guarantee you’ll never forget!
Experience the thrill of sharing your experiences, showing your birds, finding a new avian companion, or exploring the latest in bird toy fun. Join us and meet new friends with a common interest – THE LOVE OF BIRDS! Visitors always welcome!
