Book Description Howell Book House, New York, New York, U.S.A., 1997. Hardcover. Condition: New. Book Description: Zebra finches are very close to wild birds in their behaviors, and the natural history and behavior of these birds is discussed in detail. Zebra finches mate for life and do not do well living alone, so most often they are purchased in pairs. The book takes this into consideration right from the start, and all care and handling information is offered for two or more birds. This includes detailed information on breeding, which is extremely popular with owners of exotic finches. Proper housing, routine care, and in-depth information on nutrition and feeding are included. Possible health problems are also covered. A Resource section provides information on birds clubs, books and magazines and useful Internet sites. Ingram The renowned biologist, aviculturalist and author of Howell's The Complete Book of Finches now turns his expertise to the most popular of these birds, the Zebra finch. About the Author Matthw Vriends, Ph.D., is a renowned biologist and aviculturalist. He is the author of many books on a variety of avian topics, including breeding, health and natural history.
