Turacos, known also as touracos, go-away birds, and plantain-eaters, are beautiful African softbilled birds that grace many zoological parks and some private aviaries around the world. Written by an aviculturist with twenty years of experience raising turacos, this book is filled with up-to-date information and over 175 color photographs on how to care for and breed these active and unique birds. Each species and subspecies is examined, with details about their life in the wild and aviculture. Extensive information about diet, care, parentraising and handrearing turacos is covered, including a chapter on hybridizing. The beginning bird fancier as well as the experienced aviculturist will find this book interesting, enlightening, and useful.
