More Than Just Identification


Beyond a field guide, this book is divided into 27 chapters, with each chapter opening with fascinating background information.

The easily accessible information on each bird includes- common and scientific names; size; description; behaviour; preferred habitat; feeding habits; voice; status; and breeding.

Zoom in on the Detail


Distribution maps are arranged next to the photographic illustrations of the bird. A binocular icon indicates 'hot spots' to find particular birds.

A Panoramic Experience


All wild birds that have been regularly recorded on the Australian mainland, Tasmania and offshore continental islands and oceans, including sub-species where the differences are recognisable in the field, have been included and photographed.

Through the Lens of the Experts


Features over 1400 photographs by some of Australia's best wildlife photographers, including Colin Cock, Michael Schmid, Eric Sohn Joo Tan, Duade Patton, John Anderson, Alwyn Simple, Peter Jacobs, Andrew Bell, Tony Ashton, Nolan Caldwell, Chris Wiley, Maureen Goninan, Marlene Lyelle and George Adams to name but a few.

For Everyone with Feathered Interests


Whether you're a beginner just starting to explore the world of avian wonders, or a seasoned 'birdo' with years of field experience, this book promises to be a treasured resource that will be enjoyed by all.
