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.
