"Must Have"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Really really awesome mini guide! Even fits in the pocket of my rain jacket :-) It contains the most common and important birds with detailed pictures and the most important facts about the species. Also the birds are ordered by size so it's real simple to find what you're looking for. Thumbs up!!!

"Great size"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I bought this for a child as I thought it is a great size for a first bird book. Not hugely detailed, and missing many birds, but pleased with it for what it is.

"A handy pocket sized identification book" Purchased on Mighty Ape

A handy pocket sized help for identifying birds. This reassures me that I have got the name right as I see many of them frequently and some like the Sticth bird and Kaka occasionally.


Condensed version of: Which New Zealand bird? : a simple step-by-step guide to the identification of New Zealand's native and introduced birds.
