Furthermore the wrong size of the  ring, a dirty bird or cage, as well as characters  on the cage are reasons for an exclusion. NOTE: Standards for bird exhibitions of  individual bird clubs, bird associations or national bird standards often differ. For  this reason based the  descriptions of the standard of the World  Ornithological Confederation (C.O.M).
