Description

A simple, illustrated guide to identify common New Zealand birds, by bestselling author Andrew Crowe. This unique book is designed to appeal to children and adults alike ...'there has never been an identification book like this in New Zealand,' says Andrew Crowe. The book covers 98 endemic, native, introduced or migrant bird species from all the main habitats. Nine identification habitats feature four similar-looking birds with simple tips for telling them apart. Each bird receives a code from 1-100, indicating how easy the bird is to find. Exquisite colour paintings by Dave Gunson cover a greater level of detail, for example, the very strikingly different juvenile forms or male/female differences, etc. There are also distribution maps for each bird.show more
