Cage & Aviary Birds  |  No.5790 Spread Your Wings  


WHERE DO YOU draw the line between help and interference? Dot Schwarz’s column on page 19 got me thinking afresh about this. Dot describes a friend who has given up on a companion parrot whose “difficult” behaviour has proved “just too much”. Dot, more experienced in the ways of parrots, pinpoints a number of shortcomings in her friend’s care of this bird: neglect of its nails, for example. So if she had “spoken out” earlier, or even directly intervened, would things have
turned out better? As it is, both Dot and her friend, and the bird, of course, must face the consequences of failure. It’s an issue that’s apt to crop up whenever experienced fanciers observe what less experienced ones are up to. And if the wellbeing of the birds is at risk, then there’s a clear duty to intervene – isn’t there? But then if you intervene in the
wrong way you’ll be resented, which may make things worse and
possibly even drive the person you’ve tried to help away from the fancy.
There have got to be good and bad ways to handle these awkward situations, and I feel it’s to everybody’s benefit to share some relevant experiences. So if you’ve got an example of intervention working well – or indeed going completely awry – do drop me a line. ■ When something goes wrong, it’s a mark of a good person that they tend to feel it’s their fault. (As we saw with Dot.) There’s another example of the same thing on this page, where Andy Falconer describes the sad closure of South Essex BS, which he has served as secretary. Mr Falconer, it isn’t your fault that this proud club is closing its doors. It is because of you and people like you that your club has a history to be proud of. Enjoy your birds this week – and keep an extra eye on those outside aviaries as the gales continue.
Cage & Aviary Birds is the world’s only weekly newspaper for birdkeepers. Written by bird experts for bird fans, it is packed with news, advice and comment from the avicultural scene. An essential resource for members of bird clubs and societies, it also offers an unrivalled marketplace for sellers and buyers of birds and all bird-related products, both in the British Isles and around the world.
As a weekly, it’s a uniquely comprehensive and topical source of news on all subjects that affect the birdkeeper: from legal changes and government consultations, through zoo and bird-park events, scientific research and business news, to the achievements of personalities in the hobby, as well as clubs and their members.
While it’s first and foremost a newspaper, each issue also offers a wealth of practical advice and tips from the top names in the bird world, plus opinion, controversy, species and hobbyist profiles, humour and nostalgia. Bargain-hunters eagerly await their copy to scan its paid and free adverts, and it is quite simply The Bible for show reports, club news and events.
Since 1902, Cage & Aviary Birds has consistently been the first-choice publication for keen birdkeepers, whether experienced or new to the hobby.

Only recently found this magazine and so glad I did. Judging by the issue number it's been going for more than 100 years. It's a really good value read with a lot of interesting news in each issue
