"Fortunately, Linda Rubin has made available for
us
The Complete Guide to Cockatiel Color
Mutations,
reminiscent of earlier contributions,
concerning color mutations of parrots, made by
British author George Smith in chapters of his
books,
Lovebirds and Related Parrots and
Encyclopedia of Cockatiels.
However, Linda has taken the subject of
mutations, in terms of color pigmentation to a
greater depth and length  than has previously
been found in anything offered the aviculturist.
Discussions of rare color mutations and her
references to show standards, make this booklet a
one of a kind phenomena for aviculturists with a
penchant for the study genetics."

Forward by Thomas C. Marshall,
past president of the
American Federation of Aviculture, Inc.
Few individuals have given so much to the various dimensions of aviculture as
Boston's Linda Rubin. Although most closely associated with her beloved
cockatiels, Linda has held innumerable influential positions in both local and
national organizations, giving to them much of the vital impetus needed not only
to survive, but to prosper as well. Many of these organizations have naturally had
the cockatiel as its focus, but others have been as all-encompassing as the
American Federation of Aviculture.

Linda is, however, probably more widely known as a show judge, lecturer, and
as a consistent contributor to the growing literature in the many facets of
aviculture, most recently in a series of articles for
AMERICAN CAGE BIRD
MAGAZINE.
Understandably, but much to the chagrin of the many cockatiel
"aficionados," up until now, Linda Rubin had not produced a book on her favorite
subject, due to her many other commitments on behalf of aviculture. Fortunately,
Linda Rubin has made available for us
The Complete Guide to Cockatiel Color
Mutations,
reminiscent of earlier contributions, concerning color mutations of
parrots, made by British author George Smith in chapters of his books,
Lovebirds and Related Parrots and Encyclopedia of Cockatiels.

However, Linda has taken the subject of mutations, in terms of color
pigmentation to a greater depth and length  than has previously been found in
anything offered the aviculturist. Discussions of rare color mutations and her
references to show standards, make this booklet a one of a kind phenomena for
aviculturists with a penchant for the study of genetics.
