WADERS The Shore Birds of Australia   layout image

by David Hollands / Clive Minton

Waders! Few people can fail to be inspired and fascinated by them. Many make huge and hazardous migrations to and from distant parts of the Northern Hemisphere. Many take on colourful plumage for breeding, while others retain their full beauty throughout the year. The massed throng of long-legged birds on the rising tide! The noisy piping and flashy brilliance of a flight of oystercatchers! The eerie wails and cries of stone-curlews in the night! These are the sights and sounds of waders - as dramatic as any in the bird world. Where do they come from? Where do they nest? How do we recognise them? This book provides a comprehensive account of all the 80 Australian species. The book is written in an engaging, personal style with over 300 wonderful photographs. Colour photographs, 388pp. 2012

AUSTRALIAN BIRD NAMES A Complete Guide   layout image

by Ian Fraser / Jeannie Gray

Australian Bird Names is aimed at anyone with an interest in birds, words, or the history of Australian biology and bird-watching. It discusses common and scientific names of every Australian bird, to tease out the meanings, which may be useful, useless or downright misleading!. The authors examine every species, its often many-and-varied common names, its full scientific name, with derivation, translation and a guide to pronunciation. Stories behind the name are included, as well as relevant aspects of biology, conservation and history. Original descriptions, translated by the authors, have been sourced for many species. As well as being a book about names this is a book about the history of ever-developing understandings of birds, about the people who contributed and, most of all, about the birds themselves. 352pp. 2013
