    A fully updated and expanded new edition of the essential resource for those who treat and care for avian species

    Hand-Rearing Birds presents a detailed guide to hand-rearing techniques for raising young birds, providing complete coverage of a wide variety of avian species and taxonomic groups for all avian care professionals. Chapters are written by expert rehabilitation, aviculture, and zoo professionals, and include useful references and bibliographies for further reading and research. Each chapter provides valuable information on appropriate intervention, housing, feeding, and care.

    The second edition presents 50 chapters, including 12 new chapters on species or groups of species not featured in the previous edition. It also features colour photographs that help illustrate many concepts pertinent to birds. This important reference combines information on the science and skill needed to successfully hand-rear birds and is an essential resource for avian rehabilitators, breeders, veterinarians, and zoo staff.
