About this book

Waders! Few people can fail to be inspired and fascinated by them. Many make huge and hazardous migrations to and from distant parts of the Northern Hemisphere. Many take on colourful plumage for breeding, while others retain their full beauty throughout the year. The massed throng of long-legged birds on the rising tide! The noisy piping and flashy brilliance of a flight of oystercatchers! The eerie wails and cries of stone-curlews in the night! These are the sights and sounds of waders – as dramatic as any in the bird world. Where do they come from? Where do they nest? How do we recognise them? Waders: The Shorebirds of Australia provides a comprehensive account of all the 80 Australian species. Waders: The Shorebirds of Australia is written in an engaging, personal style with over 300 wonderful photographs.
