This week's issue

 

In the December 20 2017, issue of Cage & Aviary Birds, each year, the Bird Experience Oirschot in Holland puts on an extraordinary event that showcases its members’ softbills in a natural environment in a way that most British softbill keepers could only dream of. Gary Bralsford finds out more from Rick Van Groningen.



 

In news, we report that a one-off auction of birds has helped a Fife canary club towards its urgent fundraising target for new staging.




Dot Schwarz relates some interesting anecdotes that highlight the intelligence of parrots, taken from her own and other people’s experiences with these fascinating birds.

 

 



 

Starting out with a new colour or variety of your chosen species can be a bit of a minefield, explains Tony Edwards. Yet all it takes is planning, patience and a bit of good fortune.



 

Plus lots more, including canaries: blue: colour for the connoisseur, 1982: what a year in the fancy, finches: Bengalese: try a new colour, waxbills: down to the nitty gritty and bird shows: what is success? It's when everyone learns, from the judge to the debut exhibitor.
