In real life, I do discuss food exactly like how I write in my food review articles. As always my food reviews are scored only on what I've tried and the service expected of that type of establishment.

Birds of a different feather
Your super guide to pet birds. The latest in the 'Which is Your Perfect Pet' series following Cats and Dogs, Birds attempts to provide the same no-nonsense approach to your feathered friends. For those of you who have ever considered a feathery companion as apposed to a furry friend, its a whole different ball park.
The introduction quickly highlights several important considerations that affect bird owners. There are various start-up costs to keeping a bird, including whether the bird has been raised as an aviary versus cage bird. The need for quarantining new birds, permits that restrict certain breeds, noise level, long lifespans and minimal but specialised Avian vet costs are all unique to birds.
Similarly, the bird book breaks down the profile of each bird into a few sections. Each bird is detailed with a breed summary, size, colours, gender identities, diet, health, housing, companionship, noise level, ability to talk, and mimic, tamibility, and playfulness. A well rounded profile complete with one photo of the featured breed.
Birds: Which is Your Perfect Pet?
13 breeds in depth. Clear, easy to read profiles which are simple to compare. Not bombarded with photos, a refreshingly basic guide. Each section summarises information about the breed to give the reader an easy checklist of considerations to match to their lifestyle. Not enough information to make you go bird brained but enough for an informed choice.
