Written By: B.D. Butler - Jan• 13•12

There was a movie called Empire Records from back in the 90’s that helped me develop my style and individuality, I think everyone has one of those growing up.  In this movie, there is a celebrity that comes to their independent record store to sign autographs…. “No, we mustn’t dwell, we can’t…not on Rex Manning Day!”.

It just makes me smile…. I have my own version of Rex Manning Day. This is when I let my bird freak flag fly!  When the mail person delivers my latest issue of bird talk, it puts a little pep in my step. All of the articles, and my birds favorite “Memo to Parker and Pepper” by Patricia Sund (if you own greys you can relate to every article). I would not be a “bird” person without that first second hand issue of bird talk over twenty years ago…. Thanks Bird Talk.
