Product description

Around New Zealand's long coastline and its many islands, the keen observer is able to see more seabirds than in most other countries. Three-quarters of the world's albatrosses, penguins and petrels and half the shearwaters and shags are to be found here, along with representatives of several other groups. This new edition of the Field Guide to New Zealand Seabirds includes a selection of new photographs and bird data and now contains an entry for the New Zealand Storm Petrel, subject of one of the most newsworthy 'rediscoveries' of recent years. With a checklist, main map, individual distribution maps and field notes for all native, endemic and visiting species, plus colour photos throughout, this field guide is an essential piece of any seabirder's kit.
