Finch Save Census ~ Now Open!

It is that time of year again – The NFSS is once again collecting annual census data about the birds we keep. We hope you all will participate and help us monitor the numbers of each species kept in captivity. The Census represents the 2014 calendar year, so please report your counts as they stand at the conclusion of 2014. If you do not know the exact numbers, please estimate as close as possible. The important thing is to participate. You do not need to be an NFSS member to participate. All finch & softbill keepers are encouraged to participate, whether you keep one bird or hundreds – whether you breed or just enjoy them. This information helps us keep track of what species are being kept, what species are being bred, and their geographic distribution.

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.
