Who Are We?

We are a new, "hatchling" group dedicated to the welfare of avian pets and Psittaciformes in the wild; and to responsible bird ownership through education and example.\From Finches to Macaws

Our members include people who share their home with one or multiple birds, as well as responsible breeders. Our members may also be people who simply have an interest in the world of those fascinating birds, and those who hope to have an feathered friend one day

In January of 2008, the newly formed Wings Over Williamsport Pet Bird Society took flight with our first open meeting. It was a tremendous success. We had many enthusiastic members join and have had new members and interest each month since then. By March 2008 we had to move into a larger, temporary meeting place as our group grew.

We do not have a rescue facility, but we do have a foster and adoptive home program for parrots and birds in need. We have fined-tuned rigid criteria for fostering and adoptive homes. We support rescue, rehabilitation, re-homing efforts, shelters, and conservation projects.

8 Resources & Education

Before you buy a pet bird, contact us and we may be able to put you in touch with a reputable breeder. At the very least, we can offer assistance and knowledgeable advice that other sources might not have. A pet bird is not like having a dog or cat. Their needs are very different If you already have a pet bird, please think about joining us.Membership Annual membership fee. These fees go directly into the group's treasury and are pro-rated per quarter for members joining later in the year. $24.00 /YRLY per member, $30.00/YRLY per household Membership fees are due at the first of the year, or when enrolling. This fee can be paid in installments and is pro -rated quarterly. We have formed an online website, newsletter, and group list that can be found at
