"the standard indentification book for the birds of this wonderful country" Birding World

Présentation de l'éditeur

The predecessor of this book, The Field Guide to the Birds of New Zealand enabled users to identify wild birds seen anywhere in the New Zealand region. That book was in two parts: the first section was an identification guide with colour plates and distribution maps, while the second section gave more detailed information on the biology and ecology of the species described. The Field Guide was 430 pages long and sold for £55 hardback and £27.50 paperback. The current book comprises the first section of the original Field Guide - plates, maps, and short descriptions - with an Introduction, a section on where to see the birds, and an index. A much smaller, cheaper book than the Field Guide, it will be attractive to a wider audience of less serious bird watchers as well as the more serious who want a more portable version.

The only bird book I carry 26 juillet 2005
Par Frank King - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I had no experience with ornithology or bird-watching and I wanted to learn. I bought every NZ bird book in the store. This is the one I found most usefull, with its detailed descriptions and detailed images. The binding is robust enough to survive being carried in my pack since 2002.

Best Portable ID Guide 9 octobre 2009
Par D. R. Nightingale - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This excellent guide contains 74 watercolour paintings that depict all 328 species, and most sub-species, of birds officially recorded in the New Zealand region (including offshore islands)and juvenile forms too. On the page opposite each colour plate is a distribution map (if the species illustrated breed in NZ) and sufficient plumage and behavioural details to help you identify the species and gender of the birds you see in the field.

The paintings in this book are exactly the same in size and number as in "The Field Guide to the Birds of New Zealand", a much thicker book by the same authors/illustrator. The thicker book contains extra information on the biology and ecology of the species described - but I think the "Hand Guide" is a better choice for the field than the "Field Guide" as it is lighter and more concise (it also has a protective plastic cover).

If you get the "Hand Guide to the Birds of New Zealand" and the essential "Birds of New Zealand: A Locality Guide" by Stuart Chambers ([...]), you will have all the books you need for birding in NZ.

Except for a few recent vagrants, this field guide thoroughly covers the birds of New Zealand: well-illustrated with good descriptions and fine distribution maps, a good index, island maps on the inside covers and a waterproof jacket. The guide also devotes six pages to the key places to visit in New Zealand. I was surprised at its small size 6" x 8.8" x 0.5", but then pleased with how much is packed into a book that is easy to carry in the field.

Great, Compact Guide. 4 novembre 2010
Par Knut A Hansen - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Used this guide as our only identification book on recent two week trip to New Zealand. The book is very thin (mostly because there are so few birds species in NZ), making it an easy to to carry companion. Paintings are beautiful, maps seems accurate, and the text desciptive. A few of the species names are a little out of date however.
