Review quote

"For those visiting New Zealand the book is a professionally written, easy to use pocket-sized guide, addressing the majority of species likely to be seen. For those travelling light, or with limited time, the book offers a good alternative to the larger field guides or a phone-based application." --The International Journal of Avian Science
