Read about Sam the cockatoo, Mini the rosella, two kookaburra orphans, and other birds Gisela Kaplan has rescued.
Gisela Kaplan is a world authority on birds, and runs a bird rescue centre at her home in Armidale. She is the perfect person to describe the unique talents and habits of the eight bird species covered in this book – where they live, how they hunt and fight, how they mate, breed and parent, how they relate to humans. Her lively stories and photographs add a personal touch to this very special bird book.
