We have a large number of bird clubs here Daisy. Some clubs are for a mixture of aviary birds and others are specialist clubs, like the Budgerigar Society, Zebra Finch Club. Some mixed clubs are just called Bird Clubs and the area they are in like Blacktown & District Cage Bird Society or The Avicultural Society. Our club is The Parrot Breeders and Exhibitors Society of NSW and there is also The Parrot Society of Australia. Our Parrot Club meets once a month except for January. We have table shows, lectures, sometimes we do bus trips to other aviaries outside of the Sydney area, there is one coming up which will be an overnight stay, every year there is a shopping trip before Christmas to a variety of shops and warehouses. Both the parrot clubs run a big bird sale every year and both clubs get over 3,000 birds for sale. We have supper at each meeting and a Christmas Party each year. We also run a Parrot Show each year. It is a great club and is still very much going. We can also buy and sell birds to other club members.
