Welcome to the American Budgerigar Society

Across the United States and across the world there are people who have a love and fascination for the budgerigar, or budgie as it is called. We welcome your interest in this great hobby of raising and exhibiting budgies and encourage you to seek out one of the affiliated clubs which you can join. Many local clubs sponsor annual shows where breeders with a competitive spirit can compete with the birds that they have raised, for awards, and to see how their birds compare with others.

You will frequently find a judge, exhibitor, or fellow enthusiast, willing to explain the judging procedure and show you around. You will meet some very friendly and informative people who will be glad to share their knowledge with you regarding the budgerigar. So come and see for yourself what our hobby is all about!
