The author also offers insights that explain the sometimes mysterious actions of parrots. He illustrates factual information about parrots with examples & stories drawn from real life. Readers will find an entertaining & informative combination of scientific fact & instructions on the daily care of parrots with humorous anecdotes. Illustrated with full-color photos. Dr. Peter J. Snyder, in addition to being an expert on parrots, is director of the Neuropsychology Service at Allegheny Neurological Associates in Pittsburgh, PA.
