The official website of the organization contains a lot of information that will be useful for bird owners.

It is believed that birds were tamed over 4 years ago. The merit belongs to the ancient Sumerians. These animals helped them in sea voyages – the birds flew away and examined the nearest area for the presence of land, returned to the owner and indicated the further path.
