Description
There are an estimated 50 million parrots kept as pets in the United States alone (surpassed only by dogs and cats), yet these complex creatures are not your typical domesticated animal. Most people don't know that parrots score at the level of 3-to-5 year olds on human intelligence tests, or that they can live to 100 years or more. And even fewer realize how fragile and endangered many parrot species have become. Mira Tweti, who won a Genesis Award from the Humane Society of the United Sates for her LA Times Magazine exposť on the U.S. parrot trade, offers this detailed, startling, often heartbreaking picture of the world of a family of birds that are far more complex than we've acknowledged.
