Australian Parrots was first published in 1969 with tipped-in photographs by Len Robinson and was an immediate success. A second edition, with a substantially revised text and illustrated by William T. Cooper, was produced in 1980. This third edition has a text that has been substantially revised again and includes seven additional plates by Cooper, including Carnaby's Black Cockatoo and Baudin's Black Cockatoo. In all its forms this is the best book ever written on Australian Parrots and one of the finest Australian bird books ever published.
