About this book

One of the first three titles in an exciting new series of concise field guides. This is the ultimate keep-in-your-pocket guide to Australian birds, measuring a mere 90 × 130 mm. It may be diminutive in size but it punches well above its weight in terms of usefulness, being packed with more than 300 images of all the species most likely to be encountered in Australia.

For each of the 200+ main species accounts there is a photograph for identification and a brief written account listing key features, range and habitat, food and behaviour. There are also shorter ‘similar species‘ accounts for another 100+ species which include a photograph and brief description.

The book covers all of the most common and widespread species likely to be encountered in Australia – from kookaburras to finches and ducks to parrots – along with some of the more spectacular scarce species to look out for such as Southern Cassowary, Malleefowl, Helmeted Honeyeater and Gouldian Finch.

The easy-to-use layouts and small size make it ideal for taking on days out or walks in the bush. It is ideal for beginners or birdwatchers of an intermediate level, and also for children as a first bird book.
