Description
Parrots make a wonderful alternative to the traditional pet. They're as loving, intelligent, companionable, and entertaining as a cat or a dog but they surpass them by far in many other ways. They don't require walks around the block, they're perfect for apartment living, most have long life spans, and they're full of personality. Besides, when was the last time you saw a vibrant blue cat or had a conversation with a talking dog?

Whether you are just thinking about buying a parrot or you've had parrots for years, Parrots for Dummies is full of helpful information about how to be the best parrot guardian you can be. Parrots for Dummies is packed full of useful tips, hints, reminders, and warnings about everything related to parrots and their care, including:
