Exotic Bird Registry Program

American Federation of Aviculture (AFA)

Why Register Your Bird?

Every year hundreds of pet birds are accidentally lost. Some are never recovered simply because the finder cannot identify who owns the bird. Birds registered in the AFA Exotic Bird Registry will be easily identified making contact and recovery easier.

Birds that are stolen can be identified and proof of prior registration can be obtained from the AFA Business Office. The local Humane Societies or SPCA can contact the AFA and get your phone number or email address. You control the information you want released in an emergency bird recovery. When a pet bird is lost for any reason, the most important piece of information you can pro- vide to assist in its recovery is the leg band number or microchip ID number. Birds registered under the AFA Exotic Bird Registry are recorded in a database by leg band or microchip ID.

The AFA Business Office maintains a database of contact information for all owners of AFA Registered birds. The office can be contacted by phone or email virtually seven days a week.
