Hand-Rearing Parrots and Other Birds

22559493_m.jpg

Hand-Rearing Parrots and Other Birds

by Rosemary Low

Publisher: Blandford Press, 1st ed., 1987

ISBN-10: 071371901X

ISBN-13: 978-0713719017

128 pages

Hand-rearing is one of the most rewarding and fascinating aspects of aviculture. The saving of chicks which would otherwise die due to lack of parental care can be a great source of satisfaction. The end product is often a beautiful youngster which would otherwise have been discarded.

Hand-rearing is also an important tool in the breeding of endangered species, being the most effective way of rapidly increasing the numbers of such birds which would normally produce only one clutch per year. When eggs are removed for artificial incubation, or very young chicks for hand-rearing the female usually lays again.

In this book Rosemary Low explains the reasons, principles and techniques of handrearing, giving sound advice on such aspects as brooders, feeding, illness, weaning and artificial incubation. Much of the author’s advice is directed towards the hand-rearing of parrots, but useful advice is also given on the rearing of seedeaters, softbills and birds of prey.

Rosemary Low is renowned in the avicultural world as a parrot-breeder and pioneer in the techniques of hand-rearing. She is the former deputy editor of Cage and Aviary Birds for which she still contributes articles and answers readers’ queries on all aspects of bird keeping.

Книга старенькая, но, судя по отзывам, всё же достойная внимания.

Avian Eggshells: an Atlas of Scanning Electron Micrographs

22827039_m.jpg

Avian Eggshells: an Atlas of Scanning Electron Micrographs

by Konstantin E. Mikhailov

Series: British Ornithologists' Club Occasional Publications

Publisher: British Ornithologists’ Club, 1st ed., 1997

ISBN-10: 0952288621

ISBN-13: 978-0952288626

88 pages

Ornithologists have used the shape and colour of birds' eggs to identify the ownership ol nests, discuss crypsis, marvel at parasitic adaptations and theorise about many other evolutionary phenomena. Most such studies have until recently relied on information from superficial characters of the eggs’ shells. The advent of the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) has permitted the structure of eggshells at very high magnifications to be visualised. Dr Mikhailov has been compiling photographs of these images for many years, with a view to examining what can be learnt from them about the relationships between different groups ot birds. He has now synthesised his findings and presents them together with his interpretations ot their significance in this Atlas. Whilst some of the conclusions may be controversial, and perhaps lie awkwardly next to phylogenies based on morphological characteristics of the birds themselves or on their DNA, it is a pleasure for the British Ornithologists' Club to publish this book as a major contribution to the current debate on avian taxonomy. That this debate is a lively one was witnessed by the discussions, including Konstantin Mikhailov's own contribution, at the joint meeting between the British Ornithologists' Club and the Linnean Society of London, held in March 1996 and published in the Bulletin o f the British Ornithologists' Club this year.

The British Ornithologists' Club has a long history of publishing papers on birds. The Bulletin o f the British Ornithologists’ Club has been published without interruption since the founding of the Club in 1892.

Cockatoos in Aviculture

by Rosemary Low

Publisher: Blandford, 1st ed., 1993

ISBN-10: 071372322X

ISBN-13: 978-0713723229

270 pages

Cockatoos are perhaps the most distinctive of the order Psittaciformes — the parrots. They are easily recognizable as they all have an erectile crest, a feature unique among the parrots.

Popular as pets, cockatoos are known for their beauty, quick intelligence and often affectionate behaviour. Written by a respected expert, Cockatoos in Aviculture is an authoritative guide to these extraordinary birds.

Part I of the book is an extensive introductory section. It looks at cockatoos as a whole and discusses their habitat and distribution, accommodation, diet, hand-rearing and breeding, diseases, conservation and the question of cockatoos as pets.

Part II describes the seventeen cockatoo species in turn, giving precise information on each one. This includes aspects such as physical appearance, sub-species, origin and natural history, and details on aviculture and breeding — from courtship display and clutch size to incubation periods and newly hatched chicks.

Illustrated with over 80 superb colour and black-and-white photographs, this is an informative and accessible handbook for everyone with an interest in cockatoos.

ISBN-10: 0849368332

ISBN-13: 978-0849368332

207 pages

Knowledge regarding avian cellular immunity has expanded rapidly within the last few years and new information continues to accumulate. It is now a well-established fact that cell-mediated immunity plays a major role in the defense against neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases in chickens. The principle objective of Avian Cellular Immunology is to compile the latest information available on various aspects of avian cellular immunity. The book contains chapters written by leading experts in the field and covers topics including cell surface markers, T-cell immunity, natural immune functions, the role of macrophages in cellular immune functions, cellular immune suppression and tolerance, cellular immune systems in avian species other than chickens, the role of cellular immunity in neoplastic and non-neoplastic viral diseases, cell-mediated immune mechanisms in bacterial and parasitic infections, and autoimmune disorders.

Why Does My Parrot . . . ?

by Rosemary Low

Publisher: Souvenir Press; revised ed., 2015

ISBN-10: 0285643053

ISBN-13: 978-0285643055

224 pages

Parrots are sensitive creatures whose intelligence is often grossly underrated and, as a result, frequently exhibit behavior that is misunderstood by their owners. This reference guide to owning a parrot answers questions about problems and tensions between these feathered creatures and their owners. The basic elements of parrot psychology are explained, as are environmental factors that can cause biting, screaming, and feather plucking. Case studies of specific relationships are used to illustrate both good and bad examples of the pet/owner relationship.

Understanding Parrots: Cues from Nature

Understanding Parrots: Cues from Nature

by Rosemary Low

Publisher: Insignis Publications, 1st ed., 2014

ISBN-10: 0953133796

ISBN-13: 978-0953133796

186 pages

 

Rosemary Low provides rare insights into their world, gained from fifty plus years of intense daily observations of more than 200 species and of parrots in their natural habitats in 27 countries since 1974. Many people keep parrots in their homes, yet they know little about their wild relatives. "I want them to know", she says. "I want them to care what is happening to them." She reaches out to those privileged to interact with them on a daily basis, appealing for new standards of parrot care that recognise parrots are sentient and highly intelligent creatures whose psychological needs are too often neglected. In this book the author has woven together details of their lives in the wild and relates them to what they need in our homes and aviaries. It is a treasure-trove of parrot information, divided into seven sections: The Parts that make up the Whole, Psychology, Behaviour, What Parrots Need, Breeding, Foods, and a philosophical section entitled Stop and Think.... The text is beguilingly enhanced by the delightful, often quirky and humorous, colour illustrations of Mandy Beekmans, a talented Dutch artist.

Vanished and Vanishing Parrots: Profiling Extinct and Endangered Species

24192949_m.jpg

Vanished and Vanishing Parrots: Profiling Extinct and Endangered Species

by Joseph M. Forshaw

Publisher: C o m s t o c k  Publishing Associates, 1st ed., 2017

ISBN-10: 1501704699

ISBN-13: 978-1501704697

323 pages

Joseph M. Forshaw, one of the world’s leading authorities on parrots, calls attention to the threats they face: They are one of the most endangered groups of birds, with a growing number of species nearing extinction. The main threats arise from habitat loss through deforestation and agricultural development and from the taking of birds for the international live-bird trade.

Vanished and Vanishing Parrots brings together information on species that have become extinct in historical times with information on species that are in danger of becoming extinct to increase public awareness of the plight of these magnificent birds. Vivid color plates by the wildlife artist Frank Knight draw attention to the spectacular species that we have lost or that could be lost. Forshaw’s work gives us fascinating insight into these endangered and extinct parrots.

Illustrated Guide to Poultry Necropsy and Diagnosis

by Benjamin Lucio-Martinez, Jodi A. Korich

Publisher: Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, 1st ed., 2010

ISBN: 978-0-615-39605-7

64 pages

The necropsy examination is a fundamental skill necessary for the diagnosis of poultry diseases. The primary purpose of this book is to provide veterinarians and veterinary students with an illustrated overview of the necropsy in poultry.

The guide begins with a series of anatomical illustrations, providing a brief introduction to the clinical anatomy and relevant terminology. Chapter 2 covers the personal protective equipment and supplies necessary for performing field necropsies. In chapter 3, photographs guide the reader through the steps of the necropsy exam, using images of healthy chickens as a reference for the appearance of normal, healthy tissues. Also integrated into this chapter are instructions on how to collect high-quality diagnostic specimens during the post-mortem exam. The proper method for categorizing, packing, and shipping these patient specimens to a diagnostic laboratory is detailed in chapter 4. Finally, chapter 5 provides a selection of images depicting gross pathologic lesions. This chapter is intended to serve as an introduction to some of the most common or clinically important gross lesions observed in poultry.
