If your only experience of Australian birds is an encounter with a malevolent magpie, it's time to learn a bit more about the gorgeous feathered fauna that inhabit our skies, trees, streams and even perch on our power lines.
100 Australian Birds is a beginners guide to the world of Birdwatching - cargo shorts optional. Whether you're listening to chirping from your balcony or glimpsing colourful plumage on a bushwalk, this book will help you identify by sight and sound some of Australia's unique and ubiquitous native birds.
Alongside beautiful illustrations of each species, you'll find easy-to-use information, including distribution maps, identification methods and behaviour. In no time you will be looking up at the skies with a new appreciation and admiration for Australian birds. Even Magpies.
