The reason for writing a book about birds was that I couldn’t find adequate literature when I started keeping birds myself, decennial ago. Consulting foreign literature, by trial and error, and with the help of other breeders ,I have collected a wealth of information, that I wish to share with you. Because writing is not an unpleasant activity for me, I decided to make a sort of reference book myself. After my retirement I could finally start with it. Before, I did not have enough time. If I had known that writing that book would take seven years, I may perhaps not have begun……
While I was writing the book, I found that I wished to tell more than one book could contain. That’s why I first published the book Breeding Estrildid Finches (in Dutch), with information about keeping and raising Estrildids. It’s successor was the book Estrildid Finches in the Picture providing photographs and information about his finches, an identification guide, with all available information about the species and their subspecies, habitat, way of life, nutricion, et cetera.
Both books are also available on a secure DVD-R.
In addition, a 45-minute video about my birdhouse and the birds I have raised is available on DVD.
You can find more information about these publications at the specific pages.
Are the books to expensive for you? Ask them for your birdsday or Christmas present.
If you buy both the books Breeding Estrildid Finches and Estrildid Finches in the Picture together, you will get the DVD “AVITOON” ad 22,- euro for free.
