We are happy you found us and would like to extend an invitation for you to join our society of parrot-crazy folks!

Founded in 1979, the Northwest Exotic Bird Society (NWEBS) is the oldest bird club in the Puget Sound area. Our mission is the promotion of responsible aviculture, education and support for exotic bird owners and breeders. NWEBS meets monthly in Seattle presenting speakers, activities, and events on a wide-range of bird topics and publishes a newsletter quarterly. NWEBS is also the Washington State affiliate of the American Federation of Aviculture (AFA).

If you are interested in parrots and pet birds, come on down. We would love to meet you!

We meet in the Lawn Bowling Building near Greenlake in Seattle on roughly the 3rd Sunday of every month. Check out our Calendar for upcoming events or join our Meetup page to get notifications right on your phone!

Featured Flock Member

Bird Name: Maui 
Galah Cockatoo
Native Habitat: Australia
Owner: Amanda Bloom
11 months
Favorite Food: Toast

Favorite Pastime: Maui is a huge fan of foot toys and can be found frequently in the bottom of her cage running around with something in her mouth. She loves visiting with new people and encouraging them to give her scratches while she itches herself with her foot.

Interesting Story: Purchased from a breeder in San Diego, Maui is a long-time dream come true bird for owner Amanda. She’s hilarious and sweet, and Amanda has goals of turning her into a parrot ambassador for folks eager to learn about birds. It’s easier to remember cool facts about birds when you’re holding one in your hand like a baby!
