One of the first things we did [when the NFSS was founded] was to publish a newsletter. It was a little rough around the edges but did the job. It was written, assembled and mailed from the living rooms of a few dedicated hard working individuals with a goal of taking Finch and Softbill breeders and exhibitors to the forefront of the bird world. In just a few years the NFSS had leg banding in place, an accredited Judges Panel, an Affiliated Club program and Finch Save, the first record keeping finch preservation program in the world. The NFSS was represented at the American Federation of Aviculture Convention and the NCBS National Cage Bird Show.
Today the NFSS leads the specialty club world with what most call the most professional publication in Aviculture with contributing authors from around the nation and around the world. Early contributors such as Phil Shaw, Dr. Val Clear, Hal Koontz and many others lead the way to educating our members. We have many to thank for the success of our publication including the many editors we have had over the years.
We hope you find the educational materials included on our website and our non-member limited electronic archive of NFSS Journals helpful in your endeavors. We would also like to thank you, and all the people over the years that have helped the NFSS and Aviculture in general for making all this possible.
