How to protect your bird, Parrot, from aviculturists, nutritionists, and the mere expert! Filled with practical advice on birdkeeping. Refreshingly original and funny.
“These days, we see the publications of more and more specialist parrot titles, i.e., those covering one group, such as cockatoos, or one aspect, such as hand-rearing. The more specialized a title, the less space it usually devotes to the basics of parrot keeping. Many of these basics had to be learned the hard way – and the birds were the losers. But this wonderful book from the often-amusing pen of John Doole concentrates almost totally on the basics with a text which is liberally sprinkled with delightful and witty sketches. Not only is it fun to read – it is completely filled with practical l advice with coverage of each subject (from which kind o water to give your birds to ringing chicks) which is perhaps more thorough than contained in any other parrot book I have read. Neither does it suffer from hackneyed repetition; it is refreshingly original.
Many parrots are destined to benefit from this book at a time when it is increasingly important that high standards of care should become universal for captive parrots, many of which are threatened with extinction in the wild.” — Foreword by Rosemary Low, Gran Canaria 1992.
