Seasonal Contests & Giveaways

Since I started keeping Finches, I’ve seen some incredibly impressive birds that hobbyists have bred, and the wonderful environments their owners have provided for them. I regularly receive photos from TWFA visitors and fans of their birds and setups and I’ve wanted to hold a contest to reward the most spectacular for years but haven’t had the time. Now that TWFA has become a full-time aviary I am pleased to begin offering Seasonal Contests & Giveaways.

The level of commitment it takes to have an impressive bird or bird environment is above and beyond basic care ~ a labor of love that experienced hobbyists highly respect and encourage.

One TWFA goal is to promote this elite level of care and educate owners on just how to reach it. Here you will find TWFA-sponsored Seasonal Contests and Giveaways that are designed to highlight and reward the most dedicated of  bird keepers in this community.

Name our Gouldians!

We have some wonderful Gouldians arriving soon, and we can’t agree on names for them. They will be great TWFA additions, bringing color to our already diverse flock and challenging my keeping and breeding skills even further. They deserve names as interesting as they are! Winners will enjoy a custom designed photo award, permanent credit on the TWFA site, a feature article and fan item gift package.

Email me with your submission. I will keep this contest open until I hear or think of names that suit them all.

Bird of the Season

Submit a picture of your pet bird(s) and a couple of paragraphs about them to win. Submissions can be in the form of general information, anecdotes, inspiration stories or anything else about their pet(s).

One winner will be selected each season and will receive the following prizes: Your bird’s photo featured on the TWFA website, a custom-designed photo award, Flower & Canopy Kit, Take Me Home Travel Cage, TWFA tote bag, yearly Finch photo calendar, TWFA T-shirt, Mug, Finch stickers and a $15 gift certificate for the pet store of your choosing.

Adoptable Pair of the Season

At the end of each breeding season TWFA gives away a free Adoptable (or Adoptable Pair) to a good home or community. It can be one who would otherwise be unable to adopt a pair of Finches, one that has overcome a great trial or has reached a personal milestone, or it can be someone who simply shares a love of Finches. This season, the Adoptable pair will be a LB BF BC male (Leo & Lilac) & a Fawn OB BB hen (Bronson & Bella). The contest deadline is midnight ~ June 15th.

To win, submit an adoption application and your reason why you should be chosen to take home the Adoptable of the Season, as well as how you plan to care for them. If chosen, you will be sent the pair free of charge to give them a loving and forever home.
