Buying a parrot is a decision that should not be taken lightly: after all, some parrots can live up to 80 years! Are you ready to take on such a responsibility? Will you still want a parrot 10 years from now? Do you have the time to spend at least 3-4 hours with your parrot every day? Are you ready to clean up pieces of fresh fruit and vegetables from your floor and walls every day? To clean you parrot's cage (this is certainly not a glamorous job)? To prepare fresh fruit and vegetables every day? Can you handle the ear-piercing scream that some parrots can let out at 6 am in the morning? Or the screams that last for 10 minutes? Are you ready to get rid of all the non-stick pots and pans in your house? To give up perfume and candles? Are you OK with being bitten occasionally (and sometimes this can really hurt!)?And finally, are you capable of handling more love than you thought was ever possible for these little bundles of joy? If you answered yes to all of these, then read on- this book may just be the one for you!

I now live at Bonville, NSW just South of Coffs Harbour. I have been interested in bird keeping and breeding since the age of 15. I first started keeping native parrots, then when I got married I concentrated on the Australian Black Cockatoo's. In 1971 I was credited with the first breeding of the White-tailed Black Cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus funereus latirostis). In 1972 my family and I moved from NSW to far North Queensland to develop a bird-park. Our plan was to display and breed as many of our native Australian species of parrots and cockatoos, many species were bred here over the next few years. We later sold the bird park and returned to NSW. In 1986 I was offered a position as Bird Curator at the new Pearl Coast Zoological Gardens, in Broome Western Australia. This Zoo was owned by The Lord McAlpine of West Green, London, United Kingdom. In 1989 I was made Manager of the zoo and was responsible for 39 staff 200 mammals and 1500 birds. In 1993 after the zoo closed due to the health of its owner, my family and I returned to NSW, I purchased most of the bird collection and shipped them all back to their new home in NSW. In 2003 I wrote the book "Eclectus Parrots An Experience" which was a great success. Then in 2013 I release an updated digital e book edition which is available via my web page www.eclectus-parrots.com Graham Taylor. ... Order Today!

This reference book on the cockatoo family provides a comprehensive physical description of the various species of this exotic parrot, the habitat they favor, and their distribution and behaviors both in the wild and in captivity. Their reproductive history is examined, as is the possibility of breeding sufficient numbers in captivity to develop sustainable populations for re-introduction to their original habitat should they become extinct in the wild. The book explores the historical encounters of the various species with Europeans two centuries ago. That early history provides considerable insight to the cockatoo’s popularity and to efforts to breed them in captivity. Many cockatoo species face a perilous future. As their native forests are logged, the cockatoos lose not only suitable nesting and roosting sites, but native foods. Additionally, despite conservation laws governing the capture of wild cockatoos, their desirability as an avian pet has spawned a worldwide illicit trade critically endangering some species to the point that they face extinction in the wild.
