Conservation

Leg Bands

Whenever you buy closed metal leg bands from the NFSS, we track those numbers so no matter where your offspring end up their information is recorded. Bands are a must for breeding to identify parents from juveniles.

Exhibition

Showing your birds has never been easier with a detailed guide, complete list of general standards and even the latest Judges Handbook. Also if you’re interested, sign up to become a NFSS judge or contact a current one from our listing.

The NFSS is a nonprofit organization as described in section 501(C)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. We are a group of hobbyists dedicated to the conservation, breeding, exhibiting and enjoyment of finches & softbills. This is accomplished through our standards for aviculture as well as annual activities & community outreach at both national and local events. We also actively participate in conservation programs across the globe in the name of our finch & softbill species that we keep in captivity. Any funds you donate will go directly back into the organization towards educating the public including newcomers to the hobby and keeping aviculture alive.
