    Parrots A Guide to Parrots of the World: Tony Juniper (Author) and Mike Parr (Author) (0300074530)

    This is the first book created primarily for the field identifications of parrots, one of the most familiar and colorful groups of birds. 

    From the mighty macaws to the diminutive pygmy parrots, the 350 species of parrots include cockatoos, parakeets, lovebirds and budgerigar.  Most are brightly colored or even gaudy but a few are drab, and some are nocturnal and flightless. 

    Parrots found throughout most of the warmer regions of the world, occur in greatest numbers in Australasia and South America. 

    This book includes 88 superb color illustrations of every species and most identifiable subspecies of parrots as well as range maps of their locations.  It offers many first hand insights into the ecology of each species, vocalizations, life cycle characteristics and geographical variations.  It also provides up-to-date information on the conservation status of those species of parrots that are threatened or endangered.
