Biography

Kevin Wilson was born in London, UK where he kept finches and budgerigars as a young boy. Living within cooee of London Zoo he could be found at the bird house almost weekly. Keving emigrated to the 'Land of Parrots' when seventeen and has since wallowed in the variety of Australian birds available to the aviculturist. His love and interest in birds grew during three and a half years at Sydney's Taronga Zoo, followed by five and a half years in the pet and aviary bird industry. Through these years photography has also been a passion and this, with his love for birds have fused well, particularly evident is this in his parrot articles for Australian Birdkeeper Magazine and several books that have featured his work in its entirety. His own collection of birds embraces mostly parrots and he has spent the last decade concentrating on breeding rare Australian and foreign species.
