The Avicultural Magazine, Vol. 1 free pdf Excerpt from The Avicultural Magazine, Vol. 1: Being the Journal of the Avicultural Society, November, 1894 One of our chief objects will be to endeavour to bridge over the gulf which exists between the lover of live birds and the scientific ornithologist - we believe that each has much to learn from the other. We want to infuse a little science into the bird-keeper, and to interest the cabinet ornithologist in the habits of birds. A word as to our name. It seems desirable and even necessary, to invent or acclimatize a word which shall denote "a person interested in the keeping and breeding of birds." and Aviculturist (being analogous to Horticulturist) will do perhaps as well as another. If any one will suggest a better, we shall be glad to adopt it - till then, we beg to subscribe ourselves Aviculturists. We rely for the success of the Society upon the energy of the members in inducing others to join, and in contributing to the Magazine. Those who are not prepared to write a formal article have generally met with some little facts or fancies in their avicultural experience, which will be of interest to others, and if they will note these down and send them to the Secretary, they will place the rest of the Society under an obligation. We want the benefit of the practical experience of all - we neither expect nor want literary skill. In order that the Society may be of real assistance to beginners, we have arranged to give advice to members upon all matters relating to aviculture by Post. The vexatious delay which arises when correspondents are only answered in the columns of a magazine or newspaper will thus be avoided. All letters and questions must be sent to the Secretary, and contain a stamped envelope for reply. The Secretary will forward the letters to those Members of the Committee who are best qualified to deal with the subjects to which they relate, and who are willing to undertake the task of replying to questions. For the present, questions relating to Parrots will generally be replied to by Mr. Camps or Dr. Simpson- Insectivorous Foreign Birds will be undertaken by Mr. Phillipps or Dr. Simpson- Foreign Finches, by Dr. Butler or Mr. Fillmer- and British Birds by Mr. Frostick or Mr. Swaysland. Those questions and answers which appear to be of general interest, will be published in the Magazine. Dr. Simpson regrets that he cannot undertake post mortem examinations of birds, and it is particularly requested that bodies of birds be not sent either to him or to any of the other officers of the Society. We should be glad to hear from any member willing to undertake post mortems. It has been suggested that a sale and exchange column should be opened, and we are prepared to admit advertisements of birds at the rate of 3d. for each insertion, of not more than two lines. Longer advertisements will be charged in proportion. Advertisements of "wants" will be inserted free of charge. It is hoped that this arrangement will prove of mutual advantage to our members, who will thus know with whom they are dealing. We do not pretend to be exclusive, but we believe that under our rules (which have been very carefully thought out, and will be vigilantly administered), it will not be possible for any but honourable and straightforward men and women to become members of the Avicultural Society.
