Birds of the wet tropics of Queensland and Great Barrier Reef and where to find them

By Lloyd Nielsen

This comprehensive field guide covers two World Heritage areas. It is based on the concept of identifying birds by colour, habits or habitat. Every bird is accurately illustrated by the author and includes the status and range of all 451 species recorded from Queensland's Wet Tropics. There is a section on the best birding areas from Cooktown to Townsville with maps, directions and birds likely to be seen and other birdwatching tips.

There is much of interest for the specialist birdwatcher too. The author is well known for his expertise with Australia's most elusive bird, the Buff-Breasted Button Quail Turnix olivii. He has given this bird special treatment with an excellent text and a series of field drawings, including comparasions with Painted Quail.
