Book Description

5 Dec 2007
This title is one of an exciting range of books that provide essential care advice about keeping pet birds in an easy-to-access, graphically distinctive style. Featuring authoritative text, new studio photography and clear colour diagrams, they provide all the 'must-know' advice in one attractive package. In short, an outstanding reference for the hobbyist birdkeeper. The book shows where the species come from in the wild and their typical behaviour patterns. It shows you what the temperament of the bird is and how you should best relate to it as a new birdkeeper. There is a pictorial explanation of aerodynamics showing how the birds fly and the importance of giving them daily opportunities to fly in the home. There is also detail on how birds function physiologically, their sensory abilities, breathing, blood circulation, digestive system and reproduction. You are also given information on the most suitable cages and aviaries and how to set up and furnish them. There is also information on how to perform basic training, including flight commands (as appropriate), together with the causes of typical problems and how to deal with them. This book is an essential guide to problem-free birdkeeping.

Product Description

Review

Did you know that the African grey has a similar life expectancy to that of a human? Would you know what to do if you parrot escaped? Do you know what precautions to take when buying a bird? This comprehensive guide covers every detail of caring for an African grey, and even gives clear step-by-step guides to training your parrot. Greg Glendell tackles the issues of dealing with sick, injured or nervous birds, and familiarising your parrot with being handled by a vet. He covers what foods are suitable, and even gives an introduction to the history and natural habitat of the African grey. If you are thinking of owning a parrot this book will take you every step of the way. --Pet Focus
