ABOUT SOCAL NESTBOX:
Our website is intended to provide accurate and topical information for bird owners of all kinds. We’ve got resources and information to help you keep your feathered friends happy and healthy.
The development of this website was funded by the California Department of Food and Agriculture, with support from the United States Department of Agriculture.
The information on this website has been reviewed for accuracy by veterinarians participating in the California Avian Health Education Network (CAHEN). The goals of CAHEN are to keep California domesticated bird populations free of foreign animal diseases (FAD) so as to prevent future outbreaks and devastation AND to prevent the spread of a reportable avian disease, so that large-scale quarantines and emergency response activities can be avoided.
