A completely different and unique approach to bird identification.

Publisher Description

Use best-selling author Andrew Crowe's method to identify New Zealand birds by size and habitat in this simple, illustrated guide that will appeal to children and adults alike.

Which bird is it? Simply note where you spotted the bird and how big it is. Then follow the simple steps to find out which bird it is. This is bird identification made really easy!

Included in one book are all 96 birds likely to be seen by the beginner in New Zealand, whether native or introduced. Also included are distribution maps for each bird, detailed illustrations by Dave Gunson showing the striking differences between the male and female forms, and juvenile and adult forms, and a code from 1-100 for each bird, indicating how easy the bird is to find. Easy and accurate identification is ensured with Crowe's unique bird-spotting keys. 'There has never been an identification book like this in New Zealand,' says Andrew Crowe.

My eight year old daughter brings it everywhere we go. I am getting educated from listening to her. Best book ever. The illustrations are amazing too.
