About Planet Aviary

Planet aviary is brought to you by myself, Paul Bancroft. I am a third generation bird keeper who at the age of 4 was introduced to my first pet budgie “Bobby,” named after the comedian Bobby Davro. Although perhaps my choice of naming birds hasn’t improved much my experience in bird keeping has grown tremendously. I currently specialize in the housing and breeding of the Gouldian finch which has been my main passion since 2005. I also have experience in housing many other different species of bird, which include many of the Australian finches, waxbills, canaries and budgies. Each year my passion for birds grows, and having been through my own trials and tribulations over the years it is my wish that now, through Planet Aviary, to give something back to a hobby I love.

We invite you to discover the world of bird keeping with us and enjoy what planet aviary has to offer.
