Bird Talk (1-year)<span

A magazine for bird afficionados.

< read all 3 reviews

Worth the subcription cost if only for "Memo to Parker and Pepper"

  • Feb 27, 2010

I have read Bird Talk for 15 years. The magazine has not always presented the cutting edge of behavior and science. In fact, frequently the information was disappointing. However, in recent years the information has gotten better and better and the writing less stiff and more fun.

Admittedly, I'm a frequent contributor and therefore may have some bias, but I point to "Memo to Parker and Pepper" by Patricia Sund to demonstrate the shift. There is more fun and humor, better advice and always great photos and new products to investigate in every issue.

The staff at Bird Talk honestly care about birds and the companion parrot community and this shines through in the magazine and on the website that has tons of wonderful extras. This is a magazine that all parrot parents should have arriving monthy in their mailbox. I would also suggest this in conjunction with a subscription to Good Bird magazine for great advice on training and behavior.
