Sydney Birds and Where to Find Them features the 30 top bird-watching localities in and around Sydney. These birding hot spots stretch from Tuggerah Lakes on the Central Coast to Lake Illawarra near Wollongong and from the Blue Mountains in the west to some surprisingly accessible sites tucked away in the heart of the city.
Each locality entry lists the key species to look out for, including rare and seasonal visitors. It describes how to access the location, both by public transport and road, and what amenities to expect; maps are featured wherever necessary. The main section gives precise details about where to look for certain birds. There is also a handy list of Sydney birds, each entry providing information on the best spots to find it, its rarity or otherwise, and helpful tips about its habits and haunts, such as where it roosts or nests.
This invaluable guide will take you to some beautiful places, many of which you may never otherwise discover.

Reviews for Sydney Birds and Where to Find Them
?Students and scholars of the Harlme Renaissance will be grateful to Mullen for making Tolson's thesis available. While a master's theses is a proposition maintained by an argument that a candidate advances as a requirement for an academic program of study, Tolson enhances the form, perfecting it as a real document, applicable during his time. He offers an original point of view as a result of research and completes this task with a balance, a credibility, a creativity, and a subtle wit that makes a unique contribution to knowledge.?-CLA Journal
