Cage & Aviary Birds  |  No.5793 That Cardinal Charisma  


DEEP DOWN, WE’RE all flattered to be asked questions as though we’re bird experts. For practically everyone, a little humility is fitting. It isn’t always apparent, though, and I’m sure we can all name an “expert” whose vocabulary doesn’t seem to include the phrase “I don’t know.”
I’ve been asked at least twice which is the loudest parrot in the world. (Why do people think I’d know that?) “The biggest: hyacinth macaw,” I said. “Stands to reason.” Which it does, I think. But what about the non-macaws, the medium-to-large species? This week, Colin O’Hara – an
actual expert – proposes an interesting candidate for the Screech of the Century award: the hawk-headed (or red-fan) parrot, a superb creature. “I would not consider them suitable as a pet in any way,” asserts Colin on page 7. It was news to me that hawkheads made a serious racket, but a very brief online check amply confirms what Colin says. You probably
wouldn’t inflict that on your neighbours or family. But can anyone suggest an alternative challenger for the title? ■ A happy return to our pages this week for that highly respected Yorkshire budgerigar man Ray Steele (see page 13). I’m pleased to say that, after a break of several years,
Ray will again be sharing his expertise with us regularly.
■ With spring at hand and young birds on all our minds, there’s a particularly cheery selection of your photos on page 6. If you’d like to share your bird pics (whether pet or exhibition) with fellow readers, don’t be shy, pop them through! See that page for contact info. ■ Ed’s Ad of the Week: “Livingstone touraco, £130. Male, 1994, DNA cert, part exchange for small laughing thrush species, Siberian thrushes or azure-winged magpies.” See page 29. Now there’s an intriguing deal in prospect! Enjoy your birds this week.
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.

   Wow Reviewed Tuesday, July 16, 2013
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
