Wow..this is the one that is the *1st EVER* Guest Editor Issue for Bird Talk Magazine.
I SHOULD know since I was the lucky subscriber to be chosen for this *First*!
I've never missed a single isuue. I had so much fun puting the ideas together for the articles. I got to pick the pictures used & even use some of my own.
I've read Bird Talk since about 1987 & subscribed soon after that.
I treasure that January 2003 issue. I should get a couple more copies while they are still available!
I think Bird Talk should keep doing things that are interactive & include their readers. I believe we all love talking about & showing off our birds. What better place is there to do that than an International magazine just for birds...well...other than right here at BUT, I still love having a magazine I can hold on to or take with me to sit & read in bed!
