This new title in New Holland's award-winning Green Guides series investigates the ever-popular subject of the birds in Australia's back yards. Identification spreads cover all the key species and families likely to occur in gardens across Australia, including many species of pigeons, parrots, cuckoos, fantails, butcherbirds and honeyeaters. Iconic birds such as Tawny Frogmouth, Sulphur-crested Cockatoo and Laughing Kookaburra sit alongside less familiar visitors such as the Australian Owlet-nightjar, Pacific Baza, Weebill and Apostlebird. There are also sections covering introduced species, whether or not to feed garden birds, and the types of plant which supply the best cover for nesting and sources of nectar and berries for attracting birds into the garden.
