McComas Taylor and Nicolas Day
10.5cm x 21cm
This revised second edition illustrates in colour the 217 birds likely to be seen in and around the ACT. It has easy-to-follow descriptions in a compact format.
Only local birds are shown making this Field Guide much simpler to use than comprehensive national guides.
McComas Taylor has been watching birds in Canberra for over 30 years and has written, broadcast and lectured on the subject. His other major project (now out of print) was the Birds of the ACT: An Atlas with the Canberra Ornithologists Group. He lives close to the bush in Ainslie where he pursues interests in publishing, the environment and Asia.
Nicholas Day is widely recognised as one of Australia's foremost wildlife artists. His work encompasses exhibitions, commissions, illustrations and fine art prints. He has exhibited in Tokyo and at the International Miniature Exhibition on Toronto. He illustrated the Field Guide to the Birds of Australia by Ken Simpson.
