“This book discusses some fifty species and sub-species of parrots kept in Australian aviaries.  It is divided into general chapters discussing the flight aviaries needed for these birds, the kind of floor necessary, shrubs that can be grown inside or outside, general points on nesting and breeding, foods and their values, seeds and vitamins.
Three detailed sections on Cockatoos, Lorikeets and Parrots minutely consider the particular habitat, characteristics, feed, nesting, breeding and visible sexing of each species.
Finally there is also a chapter on all the most common diseases of parrots, their prevention and cure.  Although this may not be a scientific reference book it will provide as much information as is practical and which may be needed for the best care of these most beautiful birds.
The illustrations are not just pleasing to the eyes but will help fanciers to identify their parrots..”
