New Zealand’s birds, both endemic and exotic, are an interesting combination and take effort and skill to identify them and to satisfy that urge to know what you are looking at. Usually it is the bird’s colour which is first observed and used as the major identifying tool. This book, by Stuart Chambers, attempts to make it easier to learn the birds around you in New Zealand whatever locality they might be found. It takes the viewer easily to the major colour seen or the most conspicuous colour remembered and then to the habitat. Details about the bird are then included to help beginners on their way.
