The Field Guide To The Birds Of New Zealand Revised Edition - Barrie Heather and Hugh Robertson

£60.00

Product description

The Field Guide to the Birds of New Zealand is astonishingly comprehensive, covering the identification, status, and distribution of wild birds seen anywhere in the New Zealand region. Up to date and featuring the latest research, this handy volume represents every bird species of New Zealand in seventy-four stunning, original, colour paintings by a leading New Zealand bird artist, including rare and recently extinct species.
Renowned New Zealand bird experts Barrie Heather and Hugh Robertson have written a brief and informative identification guide which provides the reader with a summary of what is known about the birds of New Zealand. Each page contains a colour plate and accompanying distribution map on the facing page. The maps provide sufficient plumage and behavioural details that should help identify the species, sex and/or age of the bird in the field as well as where species breeding in New Zealand may be found in suitable habitat. An additional handbook section provides details on distribution, populations, conservation, breeding, behaviour, and feeding habitats of each species. Maps for vagrants, stragglers, and non-native seabirds, and for migratory waders (which can turn up in any estuary around the coast) are also included in this section.
The only field guide to New Zealand birds officially endorsed by the Ornithological Society of New Zealand, the Field Guide to the Birds of New Zealand is a wonderful addition to the libraries of birders, nature enthusiasts, and travellers alike.
