Gold Country Bird Society
They elected to establish the Society for the two main purposes of:
- Promoting the breeding of all types of birds.
- Education of our members, elected
representatives, and the public at large.
The main intent is to have a good time, learn from one another, and
become better keepers and breeders of the birds we care for.
Business is conducted at "board meetings" held separate and
apart from the "general" monthly meetings, thus devoting the general meeting to education via
shared experiences, speakers, slide presentations, "bird of the month" profiles,
"round robins" and the like.
The Society also sponsors sexing clinics and prints a monthly bulletin,
Birds' Eye View, filled with many educational articles and Society information. The
Society is a member of the American Federation of Aviaculture (AFA).

raffles, fifty-fifty, donations, drawings, and auctions. Most events are scheduled and held at the
