Good for aviary - adaptable to one pet in the home. Beautiful photos.

This book is worth it for the pictures alone. However, the majority of this book is geared towards aviary birds, rather than a pet situation. Author has some sort of "issue" w/adopting adult birds. I can say w/experience that adopting an adult is easier than adopting a young bird! Also, author seems to think anyone can and should be breeding 'Toos. Considering they are one of the most abused and abandoned big parrots, breeding is NOT an option if you truly love birds. And do NOT follow the wing clipping advice! NEVER trim only one wing...this is very old, very out dated information and can lead to injury w/your bird.
