    Graham Pizzey (1930-2001) was highly regarded among professional and amateur ornithologists. The longevity of The Field Guide to the Birds of Australia, first published in 1980 and now in its ninth edition, is testament to his life-long interest in natural history and conservation.

    Including 2500 beautiful illustrations by renowned natural-history artist Frank Knight, the Field Guide is not only an essential resource for bird-watchers but a valuable record of Australian birdlife.

    Comprehensive and fully updated, this new edition is more user-friendly than ever before. Species entries have been re-ordered and updated to reflect the latest 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, and a new Quick Find Index, to assist with quick identification of birds in the field.

    BUTEO BOOKS WEIGHS IN:
    This new edition has been fully revised and updated by Sarah Pizzey, long-term birdwatcher and daughter of the late Graham Pizzey. Large format illustrations and thumbnail range maps set this book apart from its competitors. Measuring 6 1/4 x 9 1/2, it is the largest option, and the heaviest at nearly three pounds, but it has long been considered the best field guide for Australia. The book includes a quick-find reference on the endsheets, brief introductory material on birdwatching and identification and bird migration, a section on classification, a field guide to vagrants, glossary, references, and a list of Australian birdwatching organizations, plus complete indices of Scientific and Common names. The species accounts include English and scientific names, measurement, other names, Voice, Nest, Eggs, Breeds, Habitat, Range and Status, and a range map.
