HASH(0x92e39b1c) out of 5 stars The book was informative but I feel it left out vital info 26 Aug. 1999
By - Published on
Format: Paperback
It was a good all around book(if you own various types of finches)and it was somewhat informative but vary vauge in the information that it did include. It is not a very good investment if you are looking for more of an educated outlook on the care and breeding of a certain group or type of finch.
I would only recomend this book to the beginer because the more experienced bird keepers/breeders should already know all of this information.

HASH(0x92e39f30) out of 5 stars An "Okay" Finch Introduction Book with Nice Photos 3 Mar. 2000
By Kathy R Dezern - Published on
Format: Paperback
The information is quite a general introduction to finches. But it is well worth the small price for the nice glossy embossed photographs of several species. Worthwhile to have as a handy photo reference on the shelf.

HASH(0x92e39fa8) out of 5 stars great book, poor title 23 Aug. 2005
By Anne Gillingham - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is not a guide to ¨owning¨ any kind of bird.

In fact, they have a very pretty picture of a shiny, bright red cardinal. It looks like a waxy, perfect apple, as it stands with its breast poofed out. He says: Nope, can't touch that if you live in the united states.

Did I miss something?

Even less, is it about owning ¨a finch.¨ - on the very first page, he says that they are cute on their own, but they need to be in a group. Next few pages cover compatibilty between species, in an aviary setting, and then discusses mixed aviaries.

The pictures are beautiful, of both common and uncommon varieties. He generally shifts from care, pulls a 180, and presents a ¨laundry list¨of the various species, their native habitat, and their behavior. Great for the bird enthusiast!

I was put off by the title, because well, we don't own any living species. I saw the book on sale and I picked it up on a whim. I'm glad I saw beyond the title. This is a really great book if you already know something about birds.

Personally, I would recommend the ¨all about your (pet) series¨ or barron's pet manuals, if you want a basic guide to caring for your birds.
