This is the first book dedicated primarily to the field identification of parrots. It covers 350 species, including cockatoos, parakeets, lovebirds and budgerigars. As well as detailed identification and distributional data, it provides information on their conservation status (a fifth of the world's parrots are on the threatened list), vocalisations, life cycle characteristics and geographical variation.
