ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- I know my birds, but I had to start somewhere, and if this book had been around it would have been so much easier to take my first steps into the lifelong joyous activity of birdwatching! Designed for the newly fascinated birder, it covers 139 birds commonly seen around the 20 most populous cities on the continent. It has a concise and chatty style, excellent resources, good clear photographs (the browns are beautifully reproduced – a real help!) and enough information (habitats, similar species, ecology, features, interactions with humans) to confidently identify that bird you see in your local area. A brilliant book - the best I’ve seen for beginners! Lindy


 

Interested in birds but don’t know where to start? Overwhelmed by the bird guides? Want to know more about the birds you see around you? Then this is the book for you!
Getting to Know the Birds in Your Neighbourhood is the first complete beginners’ field guide to the birds you are most likely to see in the towns and cities of Australia. Much more than an identification tool, though, it opens the door to understanding the habits and behaviours of your suburb’s feathered locals.

It’s also easy to understand, friendly, and packed full of information about these urban birds; and offers tips and suggestions on how to enjoy, protect and encourage more birds into your area. And one of the best features is that it works just as well in Cairns, Perth and Hobart as it does in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

So come and meet the neighbours.

‘Beware! This book will make you addicted to birding. An absolute ripper.’ — Costa Georgiadis

‘Many people have a ‘spark bird’ that ignites a lifelong love for birds. This could be a book that sparks a love of birds for a new generation.’ — Sean Dooley, BirdLife Australia
