Welcome to the Minnesota
Companion Bird Association!
The Minnesota Companion Bird Association (MCBA) is a 501c-3 non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of all avian species kept as companion birds. Our members have bird species from finches and budgies (parakeets) to large macaws.
The mission of the MCBA is to help keep companion birds and their owners happily together by providing an educational, social and commercial network for people who are interested in or who already keep pet birds.
To meet these goals we meet monthly and have the opportunity to hear speakers who bring us up-to-date information on bird behavior and training, diet and nutrition, avian diseases and treatment, conservation of birds and habitat in the wild and a host of other topics. We provide an opportunity to get together with other people who are also interested in these fascinating and wonderful feathered creatures and who can share their experiences and knowledge. Read more
Bird Of The Month
Meet Groucho – a Congo African Grey parrot! Groucho turned out to be a girl after 15 years of being a boy ( a blood test is needed to determine sex in this species). Groucho was hatched in 1992 as far as we know from her records. She came to her adoptive home when her second owner became ill and could no longer care for her. African Grey parrots are known for being incredibly smart and great talkers and sound mimickers – although many other species have demonstrated the same capabilities. Some African Grey parrots choose not to use human language to communicate so if having a “talking bird” is important to you, it is best to get an adult bird that has shown a willingness to talk. Groucho has been living happily with her “forever home” family since 2007 and has 2 other African Greys, 2 Amazons and a male Eclectus in her flock.
