BIRDS (EXCEPT BIRDS OF PREY) - BOOKS Empty Crows: Encounters with the Wise Guys of the Avian World

em Dom Ago 12, 2018 12:47 pm
BIRDS (EXCEPT BIRDS OF PREY) - BOOKS 41mmBC14EJL

This revised and expanded edition of Candace Savage’s best-selling book about ravens and crows is enhanced by additional paintings, drawings, and photos, as well as a fascinating selection of first-person stories and poems about remarkable encounters with crows. In one story, a pack of crows brilliantly thwarts an attack by a Golden Eagle; in another, a mischievous crow rescues the author from grief. And in a third piece, after nursing a battered baby crow back to health until it flies off with other crows, Louise Erdrich hauntingly describes her altered awareness as she listens for the “dark laugh” of crows while she works.

Based on two decades of audacious research by scientists around the world, the book also provides an unprecedented, evidence-based glimpse into corvids’ intellectual, social, and emotional lives. But whether viewed through the lens of science, myth, or everyday experience, the result is always the same. These birds are so smart—and so mysterious—they take your breath away

BIRDS (EXCEPT BIRDS OF PREY) - BOOKS Empty Alex & Me: How a Scientist and a Parrot Discovered a Hidden World of Animal Intelligence--and Formed a Deep Bond in the Process

em Dom Ago 12, 2018 12:51 pm
BIRDS (EXCEPT BIRDS OF PREY) - BOOKS 51D01rkidQL

On September 6, 2007, an African Grey parrot named Alex died prematurely at age thirty-one. His last words to his owner, Irene Pepperberg, were "You be good. I love you."

What would normally be a quiet, very private event was, in Alex's case, headline news. Over the thirty years they had worked together, Alex and Irene had become famous—two pioneers who opened an unprecedented window into the hidden yet vast world of animal minds. Alex's brain was the size of a shelled walnut, and when Irene and Alex first met, birds were not believed to possess any potential for language, consciousness, or anything remotely comparable to human intelligence. Yet, over the years, Alex proved many things. He could add. He could sound out words. He understood concepts like bigger, smaller, more, fewer, and none. He was capable of thought and intention. Together, Alex and Irene uncovered a startling reality: We live in a world populated by thinking, conscious creatures.

The fame that resulted was extraordinary. Yet there was a side to their relationship that never made the papers. They were emotionally connected to one another. They shared a deep bond far beyond science. Alex missed Irene when she was away. He was jealous when she paid attention to other parrots, or even people. He liked to show her who was boss. He loved to dance. He sometimes became bored by the repetition of his tests, and played jokes on her. Sometimes they sniped at each other. Yet nearly every day, they each said, "I love you."

Alex and Irene stayed together through thick and thin—despite sneers from experts, extraordinary financial sacrifices, and a nomadic existence from one univer­sity to another. The story of their thirty-year adventure is equally a landmark of scientific achievement and of an unforgettable human-animal bond.

BIRDS (EXCEPT BIRDS OF PREY) - BOOKS Empty Parrots of the Wild: A Natural History of the World’s Most Captivating Birds

em Dom Ago 12, 2018 12:52 pm
BIRDS (EXCEPT BIRDS OF PREY) - BOOKS 51n11waRyqL._SX346_BO1,204,203,200_

"Parrots of the Wild is an exhaustive compendium of information about parrots, from their evolutionary history to their behavior to present-day conservation issues. A must-have for anyone interested in these amazing creatures." —Irene M. Pepperberg, Professor at Harvard University and author of Alex & Me: How a Scientist and a Parrot Discovered a Hidden World of Animal Intelligence—and Formed a Deep Bond in the Process

"If you like parrots then you'll love this book. From their evolutionary past to their modern-day love lives, Parrots of the Wild presents a suitably captivating read. I thought I knew a lot about parrots--until I delved into these pages." —Tony Juniper, author of What Has Nature Ever Done for Us? and Spix’s Macaw: The Race to Save the World’s Rarest Bird

Parrots of the Wild explores recent scientific discoveries and what they reveal about the lives of wild parrots, which are among the most intelligent and rarest of birds. Catherine A. Toft and Tim Wright discuss the evolutionary history of parrots and how this history affects perceptual and cognitive abilities, diet and foraging patterns, and mating and social behavior. The authors also discuss conservation status and the various ways different populations are adapting to a world that is rapidly changing. The book focuses on general patterns across the 350-odd species of parrots, as well as what can be learned from interesting exceptions to these generalities.

A synthetic account of the diversity and ecology of wild parrots, this book distills knowledge from the authors’ own research and from their review of more than 2,400 published scientific studies. The book is enhanced by an array of illustrations, including nearly ninety color photos of wild parrots represented in their natural habitats. Parrots of the Wild melds scientific exploration with features directed at the parrot enthusiast to inform and delight a broad audience.

BIRDS (EXCEPT BIRDS OF PREY) - BOOKS Empty The Perfectly Trained Parrot: Fun and Positive Methods for Taming, Socializing, Trick Training, Release and Solving Behavior Problems

em Dom Ago 12, 2018 12:56 pm
BIRDS (EXCEPT BIRDS OF PREY) - BOOKS 51UPsA8x7oL._SX435_BO1,204,203,200_

A properly trained parrot is a wonderful pet--and a poorly trained parrot can be a feathered monster. This book gives parrot parents the tools to help ensure that their birds become social, tame, and fun companions. Advocating only positive, humane methods, the author guides the reader through the basics of training--including terminology and various techniques--and progresses to more advanced tasks, such as trick training, training a flighted parrot, and training a parrot to talk. Using the methods in this book, readers can prevent the development of most problem behaviors before they start and solve those that do. The author addresses many more topics bird parents will find useful, including behavioral enrichment and training a parrot to tolerate--or even participate in--nail trimming, wing clipping, wearing a harness, and riding in a carrier. The Perfectly Trained Parrot is a comprehensive resource for forging a strong and loving bond with a well-behaved parrot.
