Gardening Australia


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.
