The Carolina Parakeet: America's Lost Parrot in Art and Memory by Carole Boston Weatherford - This is a sobering story of how a young nation loved, laid waste, and lost its only parrot. This much is certain. There was once a gem in the Great Forest, a winged jewel rivaling any in the tropics. It was the Carolina Parakeet, North America's only native parrot. Curiously, within the span of a century, the great flocks dwindled to nothing and this beautiful bird disappeared. Now, it is almost forgotten. All that remain are romantic tableaux penned by pioneers, likenesses limned by artists, specimens cataloged in collections, and longing, wistful longing.

The result of years of research and practical experience, this detailed, in-depth guide covers everything you need to know about vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and other nutritional elements and how they contribute to the health and well-being of parrots.
