OUR MISSION
is to unite all who love and breed these remarkable birds and to provide a venue for the free exchange of knowledge and ideas, in order to encourage and support Timbradistas everywhere, through a cooperative effort, which encompasses education, mentoring programs, exhibitions and friendly competitions.

Past Training Sessions



The Spanish Timbrado Song Canary comes in a wide range of colors:  yellow, green, white, blue, cinnamon, fawn, and variegated, and there are both uncrested and crested versions.  However, what sets the timbrado apart is not its looks but its voice.  The song of the timbrado must always be bright and somewhat metallic whether it is presented in continuous, discontiuous, or intermediate styles.  Continuous voiced birds are sometimes called clasicos; these have many continuous rolls in their songs.  Discontinuous voiced birds are sometimes called floreados; these have no continuous rolls in their songs and are known for their complex floreos or flourishes.  Intermediate voiced birds are in between the other two in song style and are usually called intermedios; however, if they have some complex floreos, the term floreado is also sometimes applied to them.

A Message From Our Founders

    




  Dear Visitors to the United Spanish Timbrado Fanciers Web Site:
 
  We wish to extend our deepest gratitude to our Founding President,
  Mrs. Patricia Last, to acknowledge all of her tireless work and
  dedication she provided all of us in the Founding of the United
  Spanish Timbrado Fanciers, Inc. While we may have not seen eye
  to eye on some issues and were impossible at meeting deadlines,
  without her vision and insight, we would not have the foundation 
  which we continue to build upon today. As humans we can
  sometimes lose sight of our vision or let ourselves fall victim to
  unnecessary criticism but all that is necessary for us to gain
  clarity of our mission is to look back from time to time to the words
  she most eloquently penned in her Welcoming Message to be
  reminded of the very reasons why we all began upon this Journey.
  For these reasons and so many more we will be eternally grateful.

  Yours in the Fancy,

  Patricia Roberts
  Daniel McKeever
  Eduardo Hurtado, DVM
  Nella Hurtado

“Whether as breeders, striving for excellence in
 producing consistently high scoring competitive birds,
 or as seekers of the cheerful companion that 
 brightens our lives with his beautiful song, one thing 
 is clear: we need a united force, which has only the 
 best interest of this unique and wonderful variety in 
 mind. Especially in the
United States and the Ameri-
 cas, we need a venue for the respectful exchange of 
 information, new ideas, and the promotion of the 
 Spanish Timbrado. If we are to grow and thrive, we
 must set aside politics and personal issues and put
 the Spanish Timbrado Fancy
first!” 

 PATRICIA LAST, USTF Founding President

Statement of Cooperation, January 7, 2013
(Revised November 11, 2013)

In order to better promote the Spanish song canary in the United States, the respective presidents of American Association of Spanish Timbrado Breeders (AASTB), Classic Spanish Timbrado Association (CTSA), and United Spanish Timbrado Fanciers (USTF) issue this statement of cooperation.

A song canary aficionado searches for beauty in birdsong.  An organization for song canary breeders, such as a club, society, or federation, takes this individual search and makes it a group effort by adopting a score sheet representing a codified set of song rubrics, thus setting parameters for the search.  It becomes the organization’s responsibility to educate by sharing and explaining the information contained in, and philosophy behind, the rubrics.  At contests, the score sheet is used to reveal the relative song quality of the birds in relation to the rubrics.

At the time that AASTB, CTSA, and USTF were founded, there were two score sheets in wide use in Spain, that of FOE and that of FOCDE.  At least in part, the different American organizations chose to follow one or the other of the two Spanish score sheets based on the various friendships that were built up with aficionados in Spain.  Since that time, even more organizations and more Spanish song canary score sheets have been created in Spain, yet all of these organizations and score sheets are intended to promote Spanish song canaries.

Friendship is important among song canary aficionados.  Although we have our differences in organizational structures, rules, customs, and score sheets, etc. the respective presidents of AASTB, CTSA, and USTF wish to issue a statement of friendship between our organizations and to affirm that our organizations, while remaining autonomous, will seek to cooperate, especially through the sharing of information.
