About this book

This easy-to-use identification guide to 280 bird species in Australia, including the most commonly seen and rare endemic species, is perfect for resident and visitor alike. High quality photographs from one of Australia’s top nature photographers are accompanied by detailed species descriptions, which include nomenclature, size, distribution, habits and habitat. The user-friendly introduction covers climate, vegetation, biogeography and the key sites for viewing the listed species. Also included is an all-important checklist of all of the birds of Australia encompassing, for each species, its common and scientific name, IUCN status.

"[...] This book will undoubtedly be a popular pocket guide. The pictures are very clear for such a small format, and definitely sufficient for identification.[...]"
– Damien Farine, Ibis (158), 2016
