    Yes, own it. It's a good general reference - I liked the whole 'disease/symptom' section. The other sections are pretty typical of Barron's guides - habitat in wildlife, habitat needs in a home, training tips, care and feeding tips, emergencies/diseases section......

    It covered enough for my 12yo to get a good understanding about this species. Since our parrotlet is technically his, he had to read it prior to getting bird.

    Need more details? Post a message to me and I'll try to help.
