The purpose of our Society is to join together individuals who share a common interest in collecting and breeding finches, doves and softbills.

Finch of the Month!


Happy December! The red-billed fire finch is native to sub-saharan Africa and fairly abundant in the wild. Like similar finches such as the Cordon Bleu, fire finches feed on grain & small seeds. These birds spend the majority of their time on or near the ground, so in a cage or aviary, make sure to cater to that with low perches and other branches.
