I'd like to personally welcome you to the North American Parrot Society (NAPS). NAPS is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating members about all species of parrots, improving show standards, and putting the fun and fairness back into showing birds.
Although one of the primary focuses of NAPS is to support the practice of showing birds you do not have to participate in showmanship to become a member. Founded in 1991, members of the society include private bird owners, small and large breeders, and veterinarians. We are involved in specialty societies such as the African Love Bird Society, National Cockatiel Society, and the American Federation of Aviculture. Many of our members and judges hold positions with these and other societies. From that membership base we hope to offer a place where all can come to learn and participate in the hobby.
Each year NAPS holds over 25 shows at locations around the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Exhibitors and spectators join together to exhibit their birds and share in their hobby. We are a partner with the Lory League and Triangle Bird Club with their annual show at the AFA Convention. NAPS is also the sponsoring society for the Parrot division at the National Bird Show, site of the annual NAPS national show.
NAPS publishes a quarterly newsletter for mailing to all members. Each newsletter has a theme and highlights a species of birds. The goal is to have members share their experiences with that species and better the care and well-being of our parrots
NAPS members can buy society leg bands for their birds and also earn exhibition points towards championship awards for themselves and their birds.
On this website you will find information on becoming a member, a show calendar, a list of current directors and judges, information about how to affiliate a club, show reports, and other useful information. Please contact the webmaster if you can't find what you are looking for.
We hope you consider joining NAPS and becoming part of this exciting club!
Yours in the hobby,
President-North American Parrot Society
