A "bird lovers" magazine?
One thing I love about holidaying at Ballina is watching the birds fly up and down the river.
I fills me with a sense of freedom wondering what it would be like to have a set of wings and master the air like these birds do.

But the seagulls are also fun to watch.
Even the magpies that hang around the remembrance shrine near the Ballina RSL are fun to watch.

|There are even flying birds on the military insignias|
|Lest we forget ... birds are meant to fly|
Doesn't make much sense to me when birds are meant to take to the skies.
It would be like "cat lovers" keeping their cats locked up in a cage in their living rooms.
Oddly enough, after seeing that magazine I picked up the local Ballina free newspaper which happens to have a picture of my pelican mate flying free on the masthead of the paper and on the back page was a story of an empty bird cage that has been spotted in a tree for about a week and the speculations by the journalist as to why it is there.
