By Joseph M. Forshaw and Mark Shephard
Illustrated by Anthony Pridham
In this superb reference work the authors have summarized our present knowledge of each species and given readers a stunning visual of these birds in their natural habitats and in aviculture. New information from field observation and taxonomic research presented will help produce dramatic advancements in our knowledge of many species. From one of the most beautiful of all birds – the Gouldian Finch (Erythrura gouldiae) and one of the most familiar cagebirds – the Zebra Finch (Taeniopygia guttata) to little-known species like the Blue-faced Parrotfinch (Erythrura trichroa) and the Red-eared Firetail (Stagonopleura oculata) this book has detailed information on husbandry and management practices in captivity. The superb artwork and scientifically accurate text make this book a great addition to any finch keeper’s library.
