This photographic identification guide to 239 bird species in New Zealand, including the most commonly seen, unique and endemic species, is perfect for resident and visitor alike. High-quality photographs from one of New Zealand's youngest 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 New Zealand encompassing, for each species, its common and scientific name, IUCN status.
"[...] For those visiting New Zealand the book is a professionally written, easy to use pocket-sized guide, addressing the majority of species likely to be seen. For those travelling light, or with limited time, the book offers a good alternative to the larger field guides or a phone-based application."
