Book Review - Lovebirds

Guest Author - Mavis Metcalf

A New Owner's Buide to Lovebirds by Nikki Moustaki

Nikki Mustaki starts off this book by introducing the nine different species of Lovebirds. She gives descriptions of each type, has pictures of all of them (except for the Black Collared Lovebird), talks about the similarities and differences between them as well as the pet quality of each.

I could see many of my own Lovebirds in one sentence in the chapter titled Characteristics of a Lovebird. Nikki says “Imagine living with a clown, a beauty queen, a loyal friend, and an alligator wrestler all rolled into a 6-inch, energy-packed acrobat.” This sentence really fits! Anyone thinking of adding a Lovebird to their home should read this chapter as she has packed a great deal of information in these pages.

Her next chapter is Choosing the Perfect Lovebird. This is another valuable chapter as she goes into details about choosing the species, the colour, the sex, the age as well a choices on where to obtain your pet and determining the health of the birds you have to choose from.

Of course, a new bird will require housing and supplies and the next chapter gives a detailed list of what you will need and what you should be looking for since not all cages or supplies are appropriate for Lovebirds.

Nikki provides some valuable information in her chapter Nutrition for Your Lovebird, including some wonderful recipes for you to make for your bird.

The book continues on with chapters on Health Care, Behavior, Taming and Training, Grooming, Breeding and Showing. She ends the book with a partial list of harmful indoor plants and safe houseplants.

This would be a great book to acquire before you make the decision to add a Lovebird to your home, but it also contains valuable information to new owners who have already brought one of these wonderful little birds home.

You can find this book at Amazon.com or at Amazon.ca

Or you can purchase it right from the publisher TFH Publishers
