Parrots have captivated human minds and hearts for thousands of years. Records of parrots being kept as pets and companions stretch back in time across cultures and continents for millennia. Despite the enduring popularity of parrots as members of human households and families, surprisingly little is known about the lives and experiences of wild parrots. In Thinking Like a Parrot: Perspectives from the Wild, authors Bond and Diamond take on the immense task of elucidating aspects of parrot evolution, ecology, and behaviour that have largely remained inaccessible, endeavouring to fill a gaping niche of priceless information and insight about these charismatic organisms.
