BSAVA Manual of Raptors, Pigeons and Passerine Birds
(BSAVA: British Small Animal Veterinary Association)
Edited: Chitty, John & Lierz, Michael
The Manual starts with the all-important area of husbandry for the three groups, including those kept as working birds as well as ornamental and pet species. More general topics, such as handling, examination, diagnostic procedures and surgery are dealt with across the groups, with notes as required on specific differences. An excellent chapter is included on endoscopy and endosurgery - a major technique for avian patients. The specialist section on raptor disease is very detailed, including an in-depth chapter on foot disease, especially bumblefoot. Recent interest in captive breeding is reflected in detailed chapters on reproduction and paediatrics. The sections dedicated to pigeons and passerine birds look at birds at both the individual and flock level. A wealth of international expert authors, and the BSAVA Manual trademark practical approach and superb full-colour images throughout make this book a wonderful addition to the practice bookshelf. 352 pgs.

Lofts of North America: Pigeon Lofts
by: Gagne, Jerry

This book is the result of over 5 years of work, and I truly believe it is the most anticipated book in many years. As the owner of a major pigeon supply company, we receive inquiries on a regular basis, asking for information about building a loft. This book is meant to give you ideas, not only on what a loft looks like, but it is also full of interior pictures of a loft to give examples of nest boxes, perches, flooring, breeder cages, ventilation, windows, doors, trapping, aviaries, feeders, drinkers, and so much more. We included over 100 lofts from Hawaii, Alaska, Canada, North-South-West and Eastern United States. I did not want just Taj Mahal type lofts that cost a mint, (but there are some in the loft), I wanted the Average Joe loft, Racing Homer lofts, Fantail lofts, Runts, Rollers, Pouters, Dovecoats, Parlor Tumblers and so much more. We have included step by step pictures on building a loft and a page by page diagram with bill of materials to build a 4x8 loft. The book is 99% in color and much of the description text is written by the fancier who built the loft. We have amature builders and professional builders. The book is editing as we go to press with our catalog, so I can not tell you how many pages it is, but it will be over 200 and I can assure you, it will be professionally produced and a book that you will want for the many great ideas offered. Even if you do not plan on building a loft, Lofts of North America will give you a ton of ideas about improving the loft you have. Color photos. 192 pgs.
