Cage & Aviary Birds  |  No.5820 A Wiltshire Paradise  


WHEN IT COMES to names, by instinct
I’m a traditionalist. I like the connection
with history that comes from using the
same names that our forebears did.
For example, officially I live in
somewhere called Spelthorne. Admittedly, this name is in
the Doomsday Book, rather than having been cooked up by
some local government wonk the year before last. The
problem is more that Spelthorne is, administratively, a
borough of Surrey and, as we all know, Surrey is that place
“south of the water”. This side of the Thames, we are in
Middlesex: Vice County 21, not 17, if you will. Where the
Middle Saxons used to live. Lords, rather than the Oval.
OK, OK, mild obsession alert. More relevantly, I favour
traditional bird names over modern concoctions, too. I’d
much rather a bird took its name from its describer’s mistress, not
from the colour of its vent. Names are parts of the past; in the case of birds, as a record of their relationship with people. The first birdmen to record the incredible richness of the New World avifauna, faced with a deluge of undescribed species, invented the terms “antwren” and “ant-thrush” for new birds that reminded them of familiar ones. We know now that those birds are only very remote relatives of wrens and thrushes, so the names aren’t strictly appropriate. So what? It’s good to commemorate that historical bemusement, even at the expense of “accuracy”. So I’m with reader Andrew Stevens (see letter, left) in preferring the old “touraco” to the modern “turaco” and, while we’re at it, the old “mynah” to the new “myna”. Yet we use the modern spellings in Cage & Aviary Birds. It is, I’m afraid, a victory of head over heart. We could spend many happy hours compiling and consulting our own “style guide” for bird names. Thing is, we’d be musing over the merits of “leafbird” versus “fruitsucker” while our print deadline sailed past, ignored.
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
