Birds of Australia: a photographic guide

Birds of Australia

A Photographic Guide

Contains the excellent photographs of well known Australian birdwatcher and photographer Geoff Jones. The guide covers all 714 species of resident birds and regularly occurring migrants and features more than 1,100 stunning colour photographs, including many photographs of subspecies and plumage variations never before seen in a field guide. Among the few species lacking photographs are the recently photographed Night Parrot and Buff-breasted Button Quail, the only extant Australian bird yet to be photographed.

The free form descriptive species accounts give key identification features such as size, plumage, distribution, behaviour, voice and every species has a distribution map. There is an excellent introduction with extensive habitat descriptions with a large number of accompanying photographs. This book will have a lot of use for the serious birder who use photographs as an adjuct to the standard illustrated field guides, through to the recreational birdwatcher.
