The Alaska Bird Club is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization incorporated in the State of Alaska. Our mission is to promote responsible avian ownership through education and when possible, to provide rescue and adoption services for abandoned and unwanted birds in communities across Alaska.
Our Educational Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month from 7:00 — 9:00 PM at the Serendipity Adult Day Services facility at 3550 E. 20th Avenue, Anchorage, Alaska. [MAP].
We love your birds, but please don't bring them to our meetings!
We usually have a bird of the month already attending. Thanks!

ATTENTION PET FINCH OWNERS IN ALASKA:
You may not know this, but pet finches are not on the Alaska Department of Fish and Game “Clean List” and are not allowed in the State. The next opportunity to argue for their inclusion in the Clean List will be in 2016.

This is similar to bans in other states for Quaker parrots. Pet finches have escaped and formed viable colonies in the Lower 48, some of them in States with harsh winters, and they directly compete with local indigenous flocks for food. The Alaska Department Fish and Game is standing on the side of caution to protect Alaskan bird species.

For this reason, The Alaska Bird Club is sad to say that it will not be able to help find new Alaskan homes for finches. We will also not be able to provide any educational help in the care and breeding of finches.

If you have pet finches at home, you may want to consider finding a new home for them in the Lower 48.
