Do you have any reference books that you use for caring for your birds? Or do you use use the Internet for all your reference material?

I had bird books, many years ago, but I haven't touched them in at least 10 years. I use the internet for everything now.

I use the internet. What did we do before the internet anyway? smile I do check books out at the library though. I've got a clicker training (for birds) book waiting for me as I type.

I have several books, try to stick with ones within the past few years, since info changes so often. I've read all I can find. I subscribe to Bird Talk magazine, mostly for the pictures. grin For training, my favorite book is Getting Started Clicker Training For Birds by Melinda Johnson or Good Bird Inc website & books. I also have a book called The Click That Does the Trick, but I don't like this one as much.
I don't like most online info sources because they are mostly opinion, rumor, or outdated. I prefer info straight from reputable Avian Vets or Trainers.

I also use the internet and I pick up a Bird Talk magazine whenever I get the chance. I try to find books that are most frequent. :] I look online mostly what to look for in illnesses and stuff like that.

The best book I have seen online is Dr Ross Perry's Budgie Book. Does anyone have this book. Dr Perry is an Australian Veterinarian.
