31st Annual Sacramento Exotic Bird Mart and Bird Show
The 31st Annual Exotic Bird Mart and Bird Show sponsored by the Capitol City Bird Society will be held at the Scottish Rite Masonic Center in Sacramento on October 6, 2013. We are excited
about this as it gets better each and every year.
Spend the day avian browsing and shopping. The Annual Sacramento Exotic Bird Mart and Bird Show features a Bird Expo with numerous vendors selling parrots, lovebirds, cockatiels, budgies, canaries, finches and other birds. Cages, books, feed, toys and other bird-related items will also be available for sale. Whether you are looking for a bird item or a bird itself, the bird mart is the place to find it!
There is a sanctioned Bird Show for Lovebirds, Cockatiels, and Hookbills. Our judge is Roland Dubuc for lovebirds, hookbills and cockatiels. He is certified by the North American Parrot Society, the African Love Bird Society, and the National Cockatiel Society. Breeders and pet owners from near and far compete to win the coveted best of show!
California State Fair Display A Success
A Pintail Wydah, a colorful flock of lovebirds, Rosie Bourkes, and talking amazons once again fascinated fair goers at our CCBS annual state fair display. Both Rudy, the Green Wing Macaw
and Maui, the Blue & Gold Macaw received a lot of compliments. Joey, the Moluccan Cockatoo, enjoyed being the center of attention as did Summer, the Sulpher Crested Cockatoo. At times,
you could hear Greta, the Timneh Grey, say Okay or "Hello Little Girl". Gideon and Shelby, the Amazons, also said "Hello" and several other phrases.
Once again, fairgoers enjoyed, holding and petting a cockatiel at the state fair display until the final weekend. Many people enjoyed the mixed flight filled with canaries, bourkes, a dove and finches (Zebra, Society, Strawberry, Owl, Gouldian and the Pintail Wydah). Ken Cook’s beautiful lovebirds attracted many fairgoers who could not believe how many different colors there were for those birds.
A beautiful Senegal Parrot topped more than 20 parrots, cockatiels, budgies and a finch for Best in Show at the Annual State Fair Open Exotic Bird Show on July 27, 2013. Eight club members participated. Former President John Del Rio judged the wide assortment of entries. Show results are here. 2013 State Fair Photo Gallery here.
