About this book

The definitive and most respected guide to Australian bird identification, The Field Guide to the Birds of Australia is a must for both experts and amateurs. First published in 1980, Graham Pizzey's Field Guide to the Birds of Australia combines a depth and breadth of knowledge with beautiful, full-colour illustrations by Frank Knight.

Comprehensive and fully updated, this 9th edition of The Field Guide to the Birds of Australia is more user-friendly than ever before. Species entries have been re-ordered and updated to reflect the new taxonomy, and The Field Guide to the Birds of Australia has been expanded to include eighteen new species as well as a new section on vagrant species. It also features new information on bird family groups, more than 750 distribution maps based on the most recent bird atlas data, as well as a new Quick Find Index, to assist with quick identification of birds in the field.

This is the essential reference for every bird enthusiast.
