The Swift Parakeet: by Cyril Laubscher (Author) (9780950030654)

The puzzling question as to why European breeders are successful in raising young while Australian breeders seem to have difficulties needed investigation along with the scientific aspect of why this species is now endangered in the wild.  

While planning the research for this book, it soon became apparent that a trip to Tasmania during the breeding season of the Swift Parakeet was necessary.  To complete the scientific research an avicultural research program was undertaken to obtain details from breeders of Swift Parakeets among the members of various societies including The Parrot Society (UK); Parkieten Societeit (Holland) and Club des Oiseaux Exotique (France).  Similar research was conducted in other countries including Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Greenland, Switzerland and the USA.  A total of 72 questionnaires with information on housing, feeding and breeding Swift Parakeets were returned.  While this is only a small number of the breeders around the world, it certainly illustrates how much interest there is in this colorful parakeet. 

This book is the culmination of a great deal of effort provided by many people around the world who have willingly contributed and who are deeply concerted about the survival of this beautiful parakeet in the wild and in aviculture

I.S. Dyer was born and brought up in a household where Airedale Terriers and German Roller Canaries were bred.  As a young man fresh out of the Army, he spent some happy months helping his father with the livestock on a farm he then owned.  

With his background, he has always been interested in birds, animals and plants especially birds.  This is born out by the articles he has written and his book on Kakariki compiled by research and personal experience as the reader will discover.

New Zealand Parrakeets (Kakarikis): by Dr. J. Batty (Author) - Front Cover
New Zealand Parrakeets (Kakarikis): by Dr. J. Batty (Author) (9781857361162)

The New Zealand Parakeets (Cyanoramphus) have come back from almost virtual extinction to become extremely popular as aviary birds.  Unlike other Parrakeets, they do not chew the wood in the aviary or the nest boxes or perches.  Moreover generally they will live in harmony with other species. 

This book traces their history and records the recommencement of breeding in the UK by E.J. Boosey.  It also covers breeding accommodations, feeding and many other aspects.  There are also colored plates to show the attractiveness of these fascinating birds which behave in an extraordinarily friendly way in the aviary.
