      Parrots Their Care and Breeding: by Rosemary Low (Author) (071370876x)

      This is the most comprehensive coverage of the parrot family n captivity to have appeared in any language.  In recent years there has been a necessary shift of emphasis amount aviculturist, who, since importations have been severely restricted, now concentrate their efforts on breeding from their birds.  

      This book therefore deals very thoroughly with this aspect and includes the experiences of breeders throughout the world, many of them previously unpublished.  

      Parrots are especially interesting as aviary subjects, certain species breed so readily that there are more of them in captivity than in their often shrinking natural habitat; others, however, are extremely difficult to rear under captive conditions. 

      AS pets, parrots have been popular for centuries for their intelligence, affectionate nature, engaging personalities and their ability to mimic.  The parrot owner who is interested primarily in this aspect will find information on individual species' characteristics throughout the book. 

      Ninety full colour photographs illustrate widely varying species of parrot and include some extremely rare specimens. 

      This is a HEAVY BOOK - with 600+ pages!  With 28 chapters - Species, Management, aviaries, feeding, the pair bond, breeding, hand-rearing, mutations, parrots as pets, sick birds, causes and care..... just to name a few!!!

        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.
