This is a bird-identification guide with a difference.  Instead of using colour plates of paintings to identify the species, Photographic Field Guide: Birds of Australia features photographs.  Photographs of living birds can often provide detail not available in paintings, such as typical poses, real habitat and often more realistic colouring.

This highly successful book features all 840 bird species that live on or visit the Australian continent.  Following a brief introduction about bird biology, habitats and bird families, the main part of the book comprises species entries.

Each species is depicted in a photograph; sometimes there are two where male and female vary or breeding plumage is different.  A map shows each species’ distribution in and around Australia, and the text gives details of size, colour, shape, behavior, calls and habitat.  The at-a-glance symbols at the end of each entry indicate major habitat types.

This second edition has updated maps, general text information and common and Latin names.  In addition, several photographs have been replaced with better ones.
