Are you a birdaholic? This book describes the symptoms of birdaholism and how you can determine if you are among the afflicted. It also described the four stages of the condition and what you can expect from each stage. For the authors, who are now recovering stage four birdaholics, it all started innocently enough, with a cockatiel named Waldo. Then Waldo needed a friend and Waldo’s friend needed a friend. Before long the house was overrun with birds of every kind and size, pets and breeders alike. This book “Confessions of a Birdaholic: A Journey from Cockatiels to Cockatoos and Beyond” is the true and humorous tale of two bird lovers that started with a few beloved pet parrots and escalated into a full time breeding program. It is a chronicle of the hilarious antics of the birds along with humorous heart-warming situations that many bird owners can relate to as well as lessons learned along the way about the bird’s needs and behaviors. The book also includes vibrant color pictures of all its feathered subjects.
