About this book

A comprehensive field guide which describes 750 species and illustrates them in 157 painted plates, with plates facing the text. Concise and informative text details the different plumages of male and female birds, variations between adult and juvenile birds, information on separate sub-species or races, together with their range. The guide also includes species distribution maps, which enable the watcher to tell at a glance whether a particular bird is within its area, or is perhaps a rare visitor. In addition, the eggs of all species that breed in Australia are illustrated. A concise description of the nest is also given.

Biography

Peter Slater has been interested in birds since early childhood and has studied nearly every Australian species in the field. He has wriiten or illustrated more than twenty books on Natural History. The paintings for this volume took about six years to complete, with superb detail and definition, each bird being carefully checked for colour accuracy.
