Bird Talk Magazine - Last issue Sept 2012

I just read that the last issue of Bird Talk magazine, was the current Sept 2012 issue. That is too bad, I liked the magazine and enjoyed getting it every month.

They will continue with The Bird Channel, and still do the annual Birds USA issue.

Are there any other Bird Magazines?

What the heck? I ordered 12 issues and I've only gotten 6, including July. That is ridiculous, I love Bird Talk. I hope they continue the magazine...

Definitely the last issue I read elsewhere. They're keeping the site up and running and I think they're refunding people's subscriptions

My friend called and they told her they were going to send us Dog Fancy magazines. I don't have a dog, and I don't want one. I'm going to have my dad call tomorrow and see if they can send me Young Rider instead. The number is 1-800-695-6088.

Really?! I wouldn't mind that as I love dogs, lol. But still, dogs have nothing to do with birds and aren't similar in any way!

Usually the publisher of the magazine will change your subscription to something else for the remainder of what you've paid for...although I don't think they have to. I used to get FHM, and when it shut down it converted to Maxim (or was it the other way around?)

Its akin to buying someone a gift card for a business that then goes under before the card gets used.

The sad fact is print media is dying. Magazines, newspapers, even printed books are all going digital to save cash in order to stay in business at all.
