FLIGHT OF THE BUDGERIGAR
Penny Olsen NLA Publishing
Written by a respected ornithologist, this accessible and informative book takes a close look at the history of one of Australia’s most loved native birds. The budgie’s long past is explored in depth – from its ancient Dreamtime connection and survival in the arid inland of Australia, to the species’ spread around the world as a result of live bird trade in colonial times. Learn how today’s thriving wild flocks of tiny budgerigars are far removed from those bred for pets or shows. Beautifully illustrated in full colour, this book is a visual feast.
