Description

This book is designed to give practical advice on the care of cage and aviary birds, hopefully leading the fancier to many years of maximum enjoyment from his or her chosen hobby. It does not pretend to be a scientifically oriented treatise on ornithology or zoology, but is written in a style that can be understood by even beginning fanciers. The book is based not only on the author's many years of experience, but draws freely upon the combined knowledge of generations of expert aviculturists.
The author understands that beginners might be apprehensive as they discover the types of diseases that birds can come down with, the daily food required, and the various pitfalls that can lie in the path of successful aviculture. However, do not let this put you off. Normally birds are healthy, fit, and full of the joys of life. But this does not mean that bird keeping is not a serious responsibility. It must always be remembered that captive birds are fully dependent on the fancier for food, accommodation, and care. Without your care and devotion they will not make it! Keeping birds is a hobby that can be indulged in on as limited or large a scale as the individual wishes. The pleasure that comes from success with birds is the same with one pair as with many; and if they remain colorful, sing heartily, stay healthy, and especially breed regularly and successfully, you have the best proof that everything is to their liking. Such success will give you great personal satisfaction. Breeding birds presents the challenge of successfully propagating a species and offers the gratification that comes from working closely with the beauty of nature.
