Bird Talk is full of what you need to know to raise a companion bird. The magazine keep you updated on new products for your special friend. There are always articles on different birds, safety warnings and personal stories about what's happening with a pet bird. I like the articles about different companion birds in other countries or areas. You can't miss with this magazine....more info

We've had a subscription to BIRD TALK magazine for two years, and I just renewed for a third. BT is the magazine to read if you want to go beyond books. Articles in BT are written by various bird lovers, many of whom, like Mattie Sue Athan, have also written book or two. Many of the BT authors are avian veterinarians and many like Athan breed and raise and/or rehabilitate parrots or are simply extremely knowledgeable about companion birds. I find the monthly collection of articles very diverse-important to me as I have 18 companion birds, of 8 different kinds.
BT carries plenty of information about excellent bird resources- suppliers, breeders, avian vets, etc. as well as toy makers and food suppliers). I found an advertisement for a small mom and pop organization in California that manufactures play gyms and stands using old grape vines from the vineyards. These vines are harvested as the vineyards are replenished with new plants. Grape vine play gyms are wonderful fun for the birds-exercising bars as well as chewing toys-and great for giving the old beak a workout on something other than your ear or hand.
Every month a different bird is featured on the cover, and in the lead article and centerfold. I saved the Senegal centerfold to hang in my office and remind me of my own little `Bertie' the Senegal when I am at work. I hand my copies of BT to my granddaughters after I have read them cover to cover and they have used the centerfolds to decorate their room. BT recently carried an article on feather-plucking and we all read it as one of the Cockatiels had developed this bad habit. Following the advice in the article, we had the vet check Quincy out and when she pronounced him disease free, we began to examine factors in his environment. We were able to get to the root of the problem and now Quincy is his old self. Thanks BIRD TALK, keep up the great work.
Periodically, the book includes a feature article on an endangered species, environmentally sensitive bird habitat and/or and Ecotour. Bird companions are often also avian conservationists. ...more info
- Love it
This is a great magazine with good articles. Gear'd mostly towards the everyday pet owner though it does on occassion cover breeding of more "known" species. I would love to see more exotic breeds of parrots, finches, etc. I usually seek out BirdTimes if I want to learn about more scientific facts and more exotic birds....more info

- Good Info from BirdTalk
It has been awhile since I had a subscription to BirdTalk, so the opportunity to get it from Amazon at a very reasonable price during these stressful financial times was too good to pass up. The info in BirdTalk is probably the best one can get consistently in a monthly periodical. We really rely on it for care of our cockatiel, Kasey, who runs our home!...more info

I can't give an honest review yet, however, it has been a while since i placed my order, & i haven't received anything from anyone....... unless you count the bill, LOL!
The magazine service provider seems lack promptness... or, who knows, they may have went under in this economy!
Looking forward to getting the BIRDTALK magazine, when & if it should ever arrive!...more info

Even though I have parakeets, the whole magazine is really interesting. My little parakeets are somewhat like the larger birds. I haven't had the budgies all that long and I'm interested in what makes them tick....more info
- Good all-around 'zine
Been reading this magazine for a while. It contains articles on specific concerns for, and methods of dealing with anything from avian diet, behavioral problems, species-specific care, choosing a bird, avian hygiene, emotional problems, outdoor and indoor enclosures, toy ideas, treats, and laws for bird owners to be aware of. This magazine is not only for parrot owners, but finch and canary enthusiasts as well. ...more info
- Dumbed Down!
I used to get this magazine in the 80's 90's and found it very interesting but since the advent of the internet where you can find anything about anything you want, todays Bird Talk has nothing more than anecdotal stories for 9 year olds and a lot of advertising. Too Bad! I wish I had my old collection from 18 years ago. Reading current issue's is like reading Ranger Rick! I havent found anything really usefull and I could read the whole mag in 5 minutes. It was a waste of money....more info
My 1 years subsciption is failed at the 3e magazine, this bird on the right I have never had, so it is not so funny that you give that firms the right to send magazines 1 or 2 years subscriptions and they send it for a short time to me and then schluss. You have get enough of it....more info
- A must for every Bird Owner
Many years ago I subscribed to Bird Talk for my Cockatiel that I had for 25 years. Recently I purchased a new Green Cheek Conure and wanted to learn more information about the caring and raising of a Conure and birds in general. I started last july y subscription to Bird Talk and read everything. It is an excellent source of information for every current and possible new bird owner. Each and very issue is a pleasure to read and I highly recommend it to everyone....more info
- Bird Talk
I love getting Bird Talk each month as I have an Umbrella Cockatoo parrot, whom I've had since he was 3 months old, and he will be 10 yrs old in Feb. Joshua is my companion parrot, very lovable, he talks some but these birds are known for being the best parrots if you interact with them on a daily basis. Some call them "Velcro Birds" as they love to cuddle and be with their owner. Bird Talk has great articles about parrots and I would highly recommend this magazine to parrot owners....more info
- BirdTalk a must!
If you have birds or just love birds this magazine is a must. BirdTalk is the ultimate monthly source of accurate and current information for bird lovers. Anyone who is owned by parrots will find this magazine invaluable and fun!...more info
- For parrot newbs and kids
Not for breeders, or for people whose birds have serious health or behavioral problems. Just a nice fluffy mag for people new to birds.
This magazine isn't only about baby birds. Sure a lot of the content is geared toward owners of young birds. But face it, that's how most people get a bird. They buy a young one. But be assured, there are plenty of articles on older/adopted birds.
However I do agree that if you are an adult who has owned a bird for a year or even less, or if you have any previous bird-smarts, you will quickly outgrow this magazine. It doesn't help that the articles are recycled rather frequently. I worked in a pet store for over two years, and when things got slow, I would read this mag as it was sold at the checkout. (Meaning I have pretty much read every issue for at least two years)
The magazine is highly devoted to parrot owners. I'd say at least 80% of the content is on parrots in any given issue.
On the bright side, it's a good, quick read for kids or adults with no bird experience, and the pictures are nice....more info
- For a Novice Bird Owner
This was given as a gift to a first time bird owner. She is thrilled with the magazine and learning from it daily. Every novice bird owner should have this magazine on hand!...more info
- Bird Talk
I feel that the magazine is very informative, and has a lot a great articles. Good magazine for someone who has a bird or is thinking about getting one. Good research tool....more info
- Great Pictures!
Although I only received one magazine from my subscription before writing this review, I have read BirdTalk magazines before. Pictures are amazing! Articles, however, are a little weak, and the rest of the magazine is filled with ads. If you want to know about new toys, trinkets, and feed for your bird, look no further....more info
- A good choice.
This is a good magazine for new bird owners. It covers all species, so a lot of times there are articles that don't pertain to my bird, but I still learn something from them. ...more info
- Bird Talk Magazine
I love this magazine. It has very informative articles. There are also cute pictures and each month they have a focus on a different breed of bird. This magazine is a must for any bird owner....more info
