First published in 1980, Graham Pizzey's Field Guide to Australian Birds combines a depth and breadth of knowledge with beautiful, fullÃ¢ colour illustrations and a clear writing style. The result is a definitive and internationally acclaimed guide to Australian birdlife. Now fully updated and revised by editor Peter Menkhorst, Pizzey's guide contains essential information on 778 species of birds, with 250 fullÃ¢ colour plates, including more than 2500 individual portraits specially painted for this book, and 700 distribution maps. Field marks are highlighted in the text to help birdwatchers distinguish between similar species and full details of the nesting habits, voice characteristics, habitats and range for every species make this a must for both experts and amateurs.
