About the Author: from Quote on the back cover
Roger Sweeney has spent several years at various zoological and bird gardens in the United Kingdom. In 1989 he became Livestock Manager at “Birdworld,” the United Kingdom’s largest bird gardens. While at Birdworld, success was achieved with a wide diversity of species, including Parrots, Softbills, Pheasants, Ratites, Penguins, Spoonbills, Wading birds, and Birds of Prey. The Eclectus Parrot has been bred at Birdworld consistently over the last 10 years, and considerable work has been carried out into its incubation and neo-natal care. In 1993 Roger became a full-time consultant at “Birds International,” one of the world’s largest breeding and research centers located in the Philippines. This facility houses what is surely the world’s largest collection of captive Eclectus Parrots! While at “Birds International,” Roger was also responsible for the management of some of the world’s rarest birds, including the Spix Macaw, Mount Apo Lorikeet, Sumba Hornbill, and Palm Cockatoo. As of mid-1994, Riger has been retained as a consultant to “Loro Parque.”
