World of Budgerigars: by Cyril H. Rogers (Author) James Blake (Revised By) (9781857362701)
There are many books on budgerigar keeping, but, as far as we are aware, none covers the development of this popular aviary bird since it was discovered in Australia in 1749.  Yet this is still the most popular of cage birds not only for showing, but also for those who simply want a friendly bird to keep as a companion.

From about 100 years after its discovery the wild green budgerigar has been developed and bred so there is a multitude of different colors.  who would have thought that such diversity could be produced from such small beginnings?  Moreover, the exhibition budgerigar is now a much larger bird than the original and is presented in a form which is attractive and completely balanced. 

The budgerigar Society has been the leader in this development, producing standards which are followed by all who are interested in this fascinating bird. 

This new edition has been revised and includes colored plates which portray the earlier budgerigars as well as those which represent the modern type.
