About this book

A Photographic Field Guide to the Birds of Canberra and the High Country is a fully comprehensive field guide to the 322 bird species found in the Australian High Country, and includes all common, rare and vagrant species. With photographs from the author and the region's other top-quality nature photographers, each species is illustrated with many variants. The guide is focused on field use to help beginners and experts identify species. Previously published as A Photographic Field Guide to the Birds of the Australian High Country (John Beaufoy Publishing, 2017).

For each species the common and scientific names are listed as well as local variations. The main identifying features of each species are described and key facts cover size, habits, habitat, breeding, distribution, voice and status in the region. Distribution maps provide an at-a-glance view of where the birds can be found. The book also includes information on climate and topography, types of habitat, orders and families, residents, migrants, vagrants and highly scarce migrants, topography and the key birdwatching sites. The checklist provides complete information on the local status of each species.
