The definitive and most respected guide to Australian bird identification, this book is a must for both experts and amateurs.

First published in 1980, Graham Pizzey's Field Guide to the Birds of Australia combines a depth and breadth of knowledge with beautiful, full-colour illustrations by Frank Knight.

Comprehensive and fully updated, this ninth edition of the guide is more user-friendly than ever before. Species entries have been re-ordered and updated to reflect the new taxonomy, and the book has been expanded to include eighteen new species as well as a new section on vagrant species. It also features new information on bird family groups, more than 750 distribution maps based on the most recent bird atlas data, as well as a new Quick Find Index, to assist with quick identification of birds in the field.

This is the essential reference for every bird enthusiast.

 

 Graham Pizzey, who passed away in 2001, was a member of the Order of Australia and an Honorary Associate in Ornithology at the Museum of Victoria. He was also a council member of the Australian Conservation Foundation and of Birds Australia (the Royal Australasian Ornithologists' Union).

Frank Knight spent 25 years at CSIRO's Division of Wildlife Research illustrating books and scientific papers. He left the organisation in 1991 to illustrate the best-selling Field Guide to the Birds of Australia. Since then he has illustrated a series of field guides including Parrots of the World: An Identification Guide and the Field Guide to the Frogs of Australia.
