Birds of New Zealand – Locality guide
Stuart Chambers' popular Birds of New Zealand – Locality guide is on to its third edition. It presents much information beyond the extracts included in ‘New Zealand Birds Online’. In addition to a brief introduction to New Zealand, written for birders visiting from overseas, the 397 pages include a 112-page guide to ‘Bird places of New Zealand – the north to south guide to attractive bird-watching spots in New Zealand'.
The discovery of New Zealand’s birds
After four years research, George Watola has covered new ground and produced a masterly dissertation on the first-ever records of the birds of New Zealand. Every bird ever encountered on these shores has been recorded and embellished with illuminating snippets from many ancient natural history writings from Captain Cook onwards. If you have ever wondered what the early scientists and explorers found, and when, this book provides the answers.
In addition to the extracts included in ‘New Zealand Birds Online’, The discovery of New Zealand’s birds has 11 pages of introductory text, 18 pages of checklists (New Zealand bird discoveries in chronological order and systematic order), and 23 pages of references.
