Description
This newly updated book is a reference manual for every bird-keeper. It covers all aspects of bird care: housing choices; constructing an aviary; buying birds and settling them in; feeding and handling; keeping birds healthy; and exhibiting and breeding. A close look at over 250 examples provides a fascinating insight into the appearance, characteristics and breeding habits of each of the major groups: waxbills, weavers, wydahs, canaries and related finches, quails and pheasants, softbills, Australian parakeets, cockatiels, cockatoos, lories and lorikeets, parrots, doves and pigeons. Fabulously illustrated with more than 800 photographs, this book is an authoritative guide to keeping pet birds both in the home or in an outdoor aviary.
