About this book

A further revised edition of the definitive Guide to New Zealand Birds.

The Field Guide to the Birds of New Zealand aims to help the user to identify wild birds seen anywhere in the New Zealand region, and also follows its predecessor, A Field Guide to the Birds of New Zealand by Falla, Sibson and Turbott in providing the reader with a brief and informative summary of what is known about the birds found there.

The first section of The Field Guide to the Birds of New Zealand is an identification guide: on the page opposite the colour plate is a distribution map for those species breeding in New Zealand, and sufficient plumage and behavioural details that should help identify the species, sex and/or age of the bird you see in the field. The distribution maps show where species breeding in New Zealand may be found in suitable habitat; maps for vagrants, stragglers and non-native seabirds, and for migratory waders are not necessary for identification purposes, and so this information is instead given in the second part of The Field Guide to the Birds of New Zealand. The second part gives more details on the distribution and ecology of each species, but does not attempt to present a full coverage of all that is known for each species.
