Hardback book in good condition.

ABOUT THIS BOOK: 357 colour plates provide the most comprehensive colour coverage of New Zealand birds ever presented in print. They are mainly action photographs, all from the cameras of one naturalist, Geoff Moon. Some of the birds and some of the activities have nevery previously been published in colour. Unique to this book are action colour photographs of the dabchick and kokako, the comprehensive coverage of New Zealand waders, and the exciting morepork and kingfisher action sequences. 'The Birds Around Us' also presents Geoff Moon's observations of bird behaviour in text, and in captions to his photographs - birds in flight, diving and swimming, catching food, feeding, displaying, incubating, guarding nests, feeding chicks and so on, in great variety. Supplements include an appendix crammed with bird information, a glossary and an index. The whole is a dazzling picture coverage of the birds that are commonly seen - and which can be sought and found in New Zealand.
