by Matthew M. Vriends

Conures: A Complete Pet Owner's Manual (Paperback) - Very basic book, I had duplicates and gave some away to good will.

A Practical Guide to Impractical Pets (Hardcover)
by Barbara Burn

The Best Book & The One Most Often Referred To (lately anyhow, not including magazines):
The Complete Bird Owner's Handbook (Hardcover)
by Gary Gallerstein, DVM

Why? Full of good veterinary advice and medical information. Includes chapters on body systems, health care maintenance, dealing with injuries, breeding, and isolation of contagious birds.

Least Useful Book:
Any that I've given away. Too basic information, not "meaty" or "in depth" enough.

Magazines & Other Subscriptions:
Bird Talk, Birds USA, AFA Watchbird (left overs from a friend), Bird Times, Parrots (UK Magazine), Just Parrots (UK Magazine), NCS Journal (I also write articles for this one), Your Parrot Place (online subscription), Avian Medicine Chest (probably other online newsletters too that I haven't held onto and can't recall <sorry>)

The One I Like Best: BirdTalk (I've been in it 3 times this year <grin>)

Five Books I'd Like To Get:

Parrots: Handfeeding & Nursery Management by Howard Voren and Rick Jordan

Manual of Avian Practice (Paperback) by Agnes E. Rupley

The Alex Studies: Cognitive and Communicative Abilities of Grey Parrots (Hardcover) by Irene Maxine Pepperberg

Holistic Care for Birds by David McCluggage

A Guide to a Naturally Healthy Bird: Nutrition, Feeding, and Natural Healing Methods for Parrots by Alicia McWatters
