In his introduction William Greene talks of his passion for parrots: The height of our ambition in the bird keeping line for many years was to have a Parrot of our own: we were not at all particular as to the species, or as to the colour of the bird, whether grey, green or white, whether long or short tailed, we did not really care, so long as the creature could be called a parrot, and was able to talk.
