This revised edition includes updated maps and artwork, reflecting advances in our knowledge of the biology and distribution of Australia's birds, plus fully updated text to ensure identification, distribution and status details are current and accurate, along with an improved index.

Media reviews

"Like looking through a new pair of binoculars, The Australian Bird Guide makes it seem like you are seeing even familiar birds for the first time."
Australian Birdlife

"The ABG – nine years in the making – is a first-rate field guide, one of the best I've seen. Should you buy this book if you've already got an Australian field guide? Yes, I'd suggest it would be a shame not to [...] Highly recommended."
