Hello everyone,

How many of you grew up with either Captain Flint, the macaw in Robert
Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island", or with Polynesia, Dr. Doolittle's
faithful companion whose tutelage transformed him from a shy doctor into a
globe-trotting veterinarian? Or maybe you have a companion parrot living
with you now?

If so, or if you wish to learn more about the biology, ecology and
evolution of wild parrots and how this has transformed these wild birds
into treasured pets and companions, then you will absolutely want to read
this fascinating and meticulously researched book that explores the
astonishing levels of cognition and intelligence of wild parrots,
especially in the context of their complex social lives, and how that
influences captive parrots and their behavior:
