100 Australian birds / Georgia Angus ; foreword by Professor Tim Flannery.

100 Australian birds / Georgia Angus ; foreword by Professor Tim Flannery.

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 have 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, behavioural information and contributions from various First Nations about the cultural significance of 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.
