Cover Bird Mitri! (Plus, a list of parrot magazines)
Hooray! My Lesser Sulphur-crested Cockatoo Mitri got his picture on the cover of the June, 2009 issue of Parrots magazine!
The top of the magazine cover got a bit cut off because the magazine is a touch bigger than the area my scanner can scan.
“Parrots” magazine is published in the UK and their website is: www.parrotmag.com
This is the magazine I write the most for. It tends to have a nice variety of articles in each monthly issue on companion parrots, breeding, rescue, conservation and wild parrots.
For people who like to subscribe to magazines, here’s a list of all the parrot magazines I know of:
Bird Talk – Published in the USA. Monthly. It’s mainly oriented to pet parrot owners, but also has stuff on other pet birds like finches and pigeons.
Good Bird – A quarterly magazine on parrot care, especially training parrots with positive reinforcement.
Australian Bird Keeper – Published in Australia. Covers all types of birds kept in Australia by aviculturalists. I haven’t subscribed yet, but intend to.
PsittaScene – This is the World Parrot Trust’s quarterly newsletter, which is sent out to members of the trust.
Watchbird – The journal of the American Federation of Aviculture. It’s oriented to bird breeders, and has information on parrots and other birds.
There are also some e-magazines (magazines published online) about parrots. Actually, two of the magazines above (“Good Bird” and “Australian Bird Keeper”) can be sent as e-magazines. The electronic copies are cheaper than the hard copies.
Parrots International Magazine – Primarily about conservation and wild parrots, but also has information on caring for captive parrots.
