About this book

Sydney Birds and Where to Find Them features the 30 top bird-watching localities in and around Sydney. These birding hot spots stretch from Tuggerah Lakes on the Central Coast to Lake Illawarra near Wollongong and from the Blue Mountains in the west to some surprisingly accessible sites tucked away in the heart of the city.

Each locality entry lists the key species to look out for, including rare and seasonal visitors. It describes how to access the location, both by public transport and road, and what amenities to expect. The main section gives precise details about where to look for certain birds and there is also a handy list of Sydney birds, each entry providing information on the best spots to find it, its rarity or otherwise, along with helpful tips about its habits and haunts, such as where it roosts or nests.
