I contacted Russ Shade about his book and this was his reply. I saw an older post (I think it was older) that someone was looking for this book but didn't know where to find it, so if you want a book you can get one still.

The book is still available - www.the-practical-pionus.com
The book and USPS Priority Mail postage comes to $36.90.
I can email you a PayPal invoice that you can pay online, or you can mail a check - the mailing address is on the webpage.
I have a few copies here and could ship within 24 hours of receiving payment.
Oh - In Mindo, an Andean village in Ecuador where I did most of my fieldwork, the locals refer to conures as "parakeets" to distinguish them from the 5 species of Pionus parrots that inhabit the same area!.
Thanks for your interest.

Sweet! Never enough bird info in the world.

I once chased an Amazon book for years until I located the author!

Russ has posted here occasionally so I'm sure most of the posts he made were about the book. I ordered one directly from him after he posted and I already have a excellent used copy. You get the picture cd with a new copy which is nice.
