The Bush Birds
The Bush Birds, written and illustrated by Bridget Farmer, consists of twelve riddles for readers to guess which Australian native bird, commonly found in open forests or woodlands, is being depicted. Lift the hidden flap on each double page to find out the answer.
These birds are maybe a bit less well known than the twelve birds in Bridget's first book, 'Kookaburra Kookaburra'. But she hope that by interacting with the riddles and illustrations readers will soon familiarise themselves with these beautiful birds and find enjoyment in seeking them out while out on their bushwalks.
Information about each bird can be found at the back, as well as a few tips for birding and helping with identifying your spottings!
The illustrations are all created from dry point etchings which have been hand coloured with watercolour paints.
