Aratingas belong to the group of South American parrots. Together with the Macaws and the Amazons, they are the best-known parrot likes from this region. They are familiar to every birdkeeper, albeit in varying degrees, yet until now no easy reference book about this genus had appeared on the market.
The author has successfully attempted to satisfy this need; he has chosen the same layout as in his previous book, “Australian Parakeets and their Mutations,” a publication which has been received with extreme enthusiasm by aviculturists.
“Aratingas,” therefore, also contains high-quality photographs of all the species and most of the sub-species, which once again have virtually all been taken by Cees Scholtz.
The photographs accompany practical and clear descriptions in which all the important characteristics of each species are given: sub-species, origin of name, parents and you, sizes and weights, habitat and habits, diet, nesting sites, breeding process, general remarks and mutations.
