A must-have guide for anyone interested in the extraordinary birds in New Zealand

New Zealand's birdlife developed extraordinary diversity as a consequence of evolving on isolated islands without mammalian predators. For many years, habitat destruction brought on by humans posed a distinct threat to the wide variety of birdlife, but thanks to recent conservation efforts, many of the country's species of birds are now protected in parks and island sanctuaries. Illustrated with nearly a thousand new photographs from one of New Zealand's top nature photographers and drawing on the latest information from birders and biologists, Birds of New Zealand offers a definitive introduction to the identification and behavior of the country's extraordinary avian life. The book includes expert and up-to-date information on the 365 bird species found in New Zealand, including species ranging from albatrosses and shearwaters to kiwi and kaka. It will be a valuable addition to the existing literature on birding.

It will enhance any birder's experience with the stunning photos, maps, and detailed notes on identification, biology, and taxonomy of one of the world's premier island bird faunas!"-John Marzluff, co-author of Dog Days, Raven Nights; Gifts of the Crow; and In the Company of Crows and Ravens -- John Marzluff
