100 Australian Birds
Georgia Angus, foreword by Professor Tim Flannery

A beautifully illustrated and jargon-free guide for the new generations of Australian birdwatchers.

'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 species with 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.

'100 Australian Birds' is for anyone interested in birds, culture, history or our environment, but without the geekspeak.

Foreword by Australia's leading scientist Professor Tim Flannery.
