The perfect gift for the bird enthusiast in the family!
This easy-to-use fold-out chart depicts all the bird species most com-monly seen in and around Australian towns and cities, from magpies and currawongs to kookaburras and cormorants. Each species has at least one eye-catching photo, while for some there are up to three images showing different plumages for male, female, juvenile and so on.
The sheet covers the 65 bird species most likely to be encountered in urban and suburban environments – including in parks, backyards, built- up areas and wetlands – and groups them together for easy comparison and identification. Each concise written account gives some facts about the bird, including its plumage, behaviour, calls and its size (measured from the tip of its bill to the tip of its tail), plus details of habitats and cities where the bird might be seen, including a listing of each state capital within that species’ range.
The card is laminated for weather-proofing and strength, giving it extra durability to withstand heavy use and being stored in a backpack or other bag.
