The Auckland Metropolitan Bird Club has its 111th Bird Show on June 11 at the Kumeu Showgrounds from 1pm-4pm.
As many as 500 birds of all types from throughout the country will be entered for the best bird from more than the 17 species.
A range of birds will be displayed, from the biggest parrots to canaries, budgies and the tiniest finches.
Judging starts early Saturday morning and the public can then enter from 1pm.
If you need a lift after all the COVID blues, check out these beautiful feathered friends which are sure to put a smile on your whole family’s face, the club says.
A sales table will allow visitors to buy a bird or two, or other bird products.
No EFTPOS is available, so visitors should bring cash. A small entry fee ($5 adult, $15 family) will help the club put on another show next year.
The Auckland club has been around for more than 100 years and has a friendly group of members that can assist you with all your questions about keeping birds.
Not all members show birds, often they are there to learn more or to give advice to fellow bird keepers. Meetings are very informal and usually accompanied by aviary visits where you can see how other fanciers keep their birds in perfect condition.
Come along to the Auckland Bird Show at the Kumeu Showgrounds on June 11 and bring a few friends as it’s probably the first time the show has been held out this way.
