Redcliffs: Sandfly Publications, 2014. Octavo, dustwrapper, oblong format, colour photographs.
A beautiful photographic book of New Zealand's native birds that will appeal to the casual bird-watcher as well as the ornithologist. The photographs in this book have been taken by David Hallett, one of New Zealand's leading wildlife photographers, who captures the beauty of New Zealand's native birds in their natural environment, from the subtropical north to the Sub-Antarctic Islands, and from the oceans to the alpine meadows of the Southern Alps. The text is kept short and avoids the in-depth academic material found in some of the very good reference books on the market. It does include all the interesting facts that set New Zealand's native birds apart, presented in a short, concise format that makes the book ideal for browsing.
