I would only recomend this book to the beginer because the more experienced bird keepers/breeders should already know all of this information.
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.
