Wout van Gils
The Dutch bird publication “Vogelvreugd” recently acknowledged the outstanding work performed by Wout van Gils in establishing his website www.woutvangils.be attracting over 1.5 million visitors since 2008.
Most of the numerous canary articles on the website were produced by Wout himself, who has a natural altruistic flair in collaborating with others.
Five years ago the website was modernized to enable Wout to upload, update and amend the articles by himself.
Working as a maintenance manager in a metal factory he still finds the 1½ hours a day required to manage his homepage and respond to the 25 emails he receives each day. Most common queries relate to breeding, blood mite, health concerns, problems with breeding.
Wout’s true forte relates to colour canaries breeding from
45 pairs of colour canaries each year to produce about 200 offspring. In his area of specialty of colour canaries he was involved in judging contests at both national and COM levels for many years.
His website success has not gone unnoticed and he is frequently approached by manufacturers to try out their new products.
