The "Speciaalclub Insecten- en Vruchtenetende Vogels" is a suborganisation of the "Nederlandse Bond van Vogelliefhebbers", which comprises all softbills. The "Speciaalclub" was founded in 1971, April 24th and provides a common platform for contacts, exchange of information, knowledge and experience.
All softbills, both European an exotic, belong to the interest-area of our club. Their menu consists of fruit, nectar and/or insects. Mutations, bastards and seedeaters are not included.
The aim of the "Speciaalclub" is to improve the quality of keeping these birdspecies and to stimulate the further development of breeding-methodes as well. For this purpose, the following services are offered to our members:
- the bimonthly club-magazine "Vogelexpresse"
- regular meetings, both national and regional
- a yearly show/fair, Bird Experience Oirschot
Another service offered by the "Speciaalclub" is a notification-system. In this system specific groups of species and their owners can be registered and members of our association can receive a list of other hobbyists with the same interests. In addition , we have intermediaries for several subspecies. By these means our members can easily contact other members for exchanging specific information and buying or selling specific birdspecies.
