The 59th Annual National Cage Bird Show (NCBS) was held at the Holiday Inn Denver International Airport hotel in Denver, Colorado.

As the largest U.S. bird show, NCBS has categories for nearly every type of canary and finch, as well parrots and softbills. Judges fly in from around the world, and bird breeders whose birds receive a spot on the top bench receive bragging rights and heightened interest in their stock.
