Edited by C.J.R. Robertson and published by A. H. & A. W. Reed, Wellington in 1974. First edition. Hardback with dust jacket, 135 pages illustrated with many photographs some of which are in colour. This book is in tidy condition for its age.

The forests, mountains, lakes, seashores and even towns of New Zealand contain some of the world’s most interesting and diverse species of avifauna.

Birds in New Zealand is written especially for the tourist who has not encountered New Zealand birds before, but local birdwatchers will also find it a stimulating and useful aid to their hobby.

Each chapter has been contributed by an experienced ornithologist who writes on his own speciality and interest: I.A.E. Atkinson writes on bird habitats; R.B. Simpson on birds of forest and mountain; P.C. Bull on the relationship between birds and man; T.A. Caithness on waterfowl and upland gamebirds; H.R. McKenzie on wading birds; F.C. Kinsky and C.J.R. Robertson on birds of ocean and shore; D.G. Medway on extinct birds, and Sir Robert Falla contributes a chapter on rare birds and conservation. The result is a comprehensive introduction to the birds in New Zealand.

Both native and introduced birdlife are concisely described and beautifully illustrated in over 65; photographs. Please click here to ask a question
