Caring For Australian Native Birds

Caring For Australian Native Birds by Heather Parsons


The many beautiful and remarkable native birds of Australia often fall victim to the influence of humans - the destruction and fragmentation of natural habitat, attacks by introduced predators, pesticides, cars, trains and fishing lines all take their toll. This book has been designed as the essential handbook for those who want to redress the balance by restoring these victims to their rightful place in the wild.

The book covers the ethics of caring for wild birds, basic principles of identification, anatomy, behaviour, feeding and housing needs. First aid is covered in detail. The basics of rehabilitation and readying a bird for release into the wild includes valuable information on how to avoid young birds imprinting on their human carers. Detailed care plans are provided for birds from every ecological niche, from the smallest insectivores to migratory seabirds.
