- 100 Australian Birds is for anyone interested in birds, culture, history or our environment, but without the geekspeak.
100 Australian Birds is a beginner's guide to the world of birdwatching. From the outside, this strange hobby of birdwatching appears to consist of sizeable camera lenses, khaki pants that are pulled up too high, and gruelling treks in pursuit of rare bird species. But for those who haven't been scared off by jumbo field guides and excessive terminology, this book is for you.
Carefully tailored to guide birdwatchers anywhere in Australia, this book reveals insights into one hundred key native specieswith lush illustrations and accessible descriptions. As well as the author's original illustrations, there are distribution maps, identification methods, behavioral information and contributions from First Nations people on Taungurung, Gumbaynggirr and Wiradjuri names for particular birds.
Foreword by Australia's leading scientist Professor Tim Flannery.
