An introduction to the birds of New Zealand, aimed at all levels of birdwatcher, and of special use to travellers to the islands. For each of the 170 plus species, there is a brief description, local and Maori names, range, and a guide to localities where it may be seen. This revised and updated second edition contains more species and more areas to watch them. The book does not attempt a complete coverage of New Zealand birds or places. Rather, it is selective, introducing people to birds they have a chance of seeing, and only taking birders to places which are easy to get to and which promise results. This book supports the notion that birds are less endangered and better protected if the public is knowledgeable and educated about them.
