=A guide to the best birdwatching locations
Bump to head of spine. This lavishly illustrated guide describes 55 of the best sites for viewing both common and rare species in Australia. Alongside a map of the area, detailed descriptions of each site cover the type of terrain, climate and specific spots at which certain species are likely to be encountered. A fact file for each site lists road and rail access; entry fees and permits, facilities, nearby services, accommodation and GPS coordinates. Key species for each site are also listed. Australia has almost 340 endemic bird species and more than 730 endemic subspecies. This book guides you to the country's most species-rich areas, places where key endemics can be found. It is designed as both a reference and information guide to help plan a successful birding trip to sites where multiple species can be viewed.
