This is a reference work on rearing by hand for all common bird species. This book is a valuable guide for those working at shelters taking in young birds.
This book gives detailed information; it is of great value for all those who work with birds, beginner and professional alike. The species-specific chapters contain information on a very broad range of birds: from penguins to flightless birds, from hummingbirds to pheasants, from woodpeckers to raptors and many more.
Both authors have many years of experience with birds in both zoos and sanctuaries. Besides their hands-on work, they also teach at shelters: about caring for baby birds and about wounds and fractures in all birds.
