The South Bay Bird Society is happy you’ve flown over to see us!
We welcome you and your flock to the South Bay Bird Society. We are so happy to see you. We’re shaking our tail feathers and inviting you inside. You are welcome to meet the other members of our flock and we look forward to finding all about yours. Our goal is to share all the things we have learned along the flight path, including teaching our humans how to care for us.
You may have questions or you may be in need of assistance along the way about how to care for your birds. Check out the entire SBBS website and, if you haven’t found the answer, you can always contact us or attend an SBBS meeting. Plus, have fun along the way! We are always open to your suggestions and ideas!
What are the benefits to you of joining the South Bay Bird Society?
Formerly known as the" South Bay Bird Club" prior to 1997.
In addition to getting a glimpse of our activities and resources, you will also find a wealth of information on having birds, living with birds, and caring for them.
In the wild, birds forage for food throughout the day. Our birds need a varied diet of vegetables, fruits, pellets, nuts, and protein. If you can, feed organic! There are foods and beverages that you would never feed your birds - avocado, raw or uncooked protein, chocolate, caffeinated or alcoholic beverages.
