Foreign Bird League Breeder's Awards

Foreign Bird League Breeder's Awards




The Foreign Bird League runs a breeding award scheme for all League members.

 

Members are encouraged to forward all records of successful breedings to the Breeding Records Officer each year.



 

You can rest assured that all breedings reported will be kept in strictest confidence.



 

The records are anonymously reviewed by the Council and awards are in the form of a medallion or an individually inscribed certificate. There is also an overall award for most Outstanding Breeding of the Year who receives the Ruth Sawyer (nee Ezra) Award.


The awards for 2016 have now been decided upon and the results have been published in the magazine.


 A number of FBL "first breedings" have been submitted and are awaiting verification. Assuming verification is made, these will be ratified at the next Council meeting. These "proposed Firsts" have been printed in the Summer 2017 edition of "Foreign Birds".

 

First breedings by a League member are recognised separately and, once a breeding report has been published in the magazine, are marked by the awarding of an engraved plaque.

 


Breedings are for the previous year and the chicks must be raised to independence. First breedings by any League member should ideally be verified by another League member and a supporting article sent to the magazine editor for inclusion.

 

Each year the Breeding Records Officer collates the reports which is summarised in the magazine. The total breedings will be forwarded for inclusion in the Breeding Register issued by the Foreign Bird Federation.

 

Every member will receive a form each year (usually enclosed in the magazine) and the return address for the Breeding Records Officer will be printed on that form.
