Illustrated with stunning new photographs by Brent Stephenson and drawing on the latest information from birders and biologists, Birds of New Zealand is the definitive introduction to the identification and behaviour of this country’s extraordinary avian life. From the Kermadecs to Campbell Island, from beloved endemics to passing vagrants, from albatrosses and shearwaters to kiwi and kaka, the book ranges widely. Evolving on isolated islands without mammals, New Zealand’s birdlife developed extraordinary diversity. After the extinction and habitat destruction wrought by humans, our birds today are now protected in parks and island sanctuaries and seen increasingly in farms and cities. Birds of New Zealand is the must-have guide to our extraordinary birds – a copy belongs in every bach and backpack.
