Welcome To Bird Keepinglogo.gif (5074 bytes)

The NCA recognises that bringing new fanciers to bird keeping is essential to the long term success of this marvellous centuries-old hobby. The “Welcome to Bird Keeping” booklet has been produced by the NCA in January 2010 and updated in July 2013, with this in mind. It is a hobby that can be enjoyed by people of any age, background, and pocket.

The booklet, 16 pages in colour, describes some of the things that need to be considered before taking up the keeping of birds, whether that be a single pet bird, a mixed garden aviary, or a collection of exhibition birds, and is essential reading for those interested in or proposing to take up bird keeping. Excellent photographs illustrate some of the birds that have been kept and bred in captivity, but by its nature cannot illustrate all the different types of bird kept by enthusiasts all over the world, but especially in Great Britain.
