John Willis

John Willis

Finches, Hookbills, Softbills and Budgerigars

John was born and raised in Picton, Ontario. His father, Bill, an avid fancier introduced him to birds and showing at an early age. Moving to BC in the mid 60's, John joined the British Columbia Avicultural Society and raised various canaries, hookbills, finches, and budgerigars, at one time keeping some 600 birds. A strong supporter of shows, he has exhibited at Las Vegas, Longbeach, and Seattle, in the U.S. as well as numerous shows in Alberta and BC winning numerous major awards. One major highlight was winning Best In Show at Western Budgerigar Association, a show with over 300 entries, with an owner bred hen in 1985.

John is a past show manager, band secretary, treasurer, bulletin editor, and director of several bird clubs. As a director and judge with the AACC he helped write the original AACC Show Manual and credits Earl Hamm, Jim Marshall, and Carl Slavin as being most influential throughout the years.

John has judged at Windsor, Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, Kelowna, Victoria, Nanaimo, Langley, and other shows around the lower mainland area of BC. John presently lives in Victoria (Saanich), BC. His other interests include Sprint Car racing, a 67 Buick, his motorhome...and 75 birds.
