National Finch and Softbill Show - November 18th-20th - San Diego, California


Each day brings us closer to the National Finch and Softbill Show scheduled for November 18th-20th in San Diego, California.

We already know there's an experienced group of enthusiasts working behind the scenes to make this a spectacular event. We know the Convention Center in which the event is going to be held is a luxurious and grand place - offering some very reasonable prices on rooms if we call prior to Oct 26th (800-772-8527) and mention the Finch Show. We know if we decide to arrive a few days early or stay a few days longer after the completion of the event there are a million fun and exciting things to do in and around the San Diego area - many of them within walking distance of the Convention Center. We know the NFSS Panel Judge selected to judge this years' exhibits, Vince Moase from Canada, is experienced and knowledgeable - and we know there are some very prestigious awards available. We also know there's going to be another informative Afternoon of Aviculture presentation. And, as an added attraction, this year tours of different Aviaries has been arranged for any interested. ( Meet at the Town and Contry Hotel for carpooling at 9:00 a.m. on Thursdsay, 11/19/10 to be part of this fun filled day.)

What MORE could we NEED to know!!!!

Make your reservations TODAY to attend the NFSS Annual Show!

Provide public nest box for wild birds

Hello Everybody,

Fall is coming... and for most part of our bird friends it's time to migrate in hotter places, but for another part of them it's time to find a new safe home where spend fall season.

To help them to find a good place to stay and maybe persuade birds to seattle down, it's a good idea setup an external public nest box.

There are several kind of nest box, each for every kind of bird.

I chose to build a wooden one, closet kind, appropriete for most part of wild italian bird fauna.

Take a look at my work!

Save 1 hour of your life and made it or buy it, setup on top of a wall or hang to a tree, in a safe place, far from people and hidden for raptors; this simply action could safe a family bird life.

Have a nice Fall!
