Cockatiel Foundation, Inc. &
Society of Parrot Breeders & Exhibitors (SPBE)
Linda S. Rubin has been a breeder and exhibitor of
budgerigars, cockatiels, and parrots for several
decades and was the first NCS judge to qualify and be
tested in the National Cockatiel Society following the
initial 5 grandfathered judges.  She served on the
panel from 1984 to 2007, when she founded the
Cockatiel Foundation, Inc. and became its first judge.
Linda  qualified as a Panel Judge for the Society of
Parrot Breeders & Exhibitors in 1985 and continues to
serve to the present. She has championed exhibition
cockatiels, ABS budgerigars, and SPBE parrots, and
judged cockatiel and parrot shows around the United
States, Canada, and Puerto Rico since 1984. She
presided as judge at three National Cage Bird Shows
(1991, 1996, and 1999), the Great American Bird Show
(1986), and the Canadian National Cage Bird Show
(2008), and various assignments in Puerto Rico and

Linda participated as a member of the ACS Show
Standards Committee in 1976, and eventually went on
to author the original "
NCS Show Standard of
" in 1984, and the "Cockatiel Foundation
Show Standard for the Ideal Cockatiel"
in 2007. These
Standards have frequently been used as a model in
drafting others. Linda served many years as NCS
Chairman of the Judges' Panel and authored an
extensive Judges' Panel exam for the organization in
2005. She continues to be consulted for advice from
other avian organizations on writing standards.
