Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
"With jaw-dropping endemic species such as Kiwi, Kea and Takahe, New Zealand is a birdwatcher's paradise. For New Zealand birders and visitors to the country alike, this innovative and useful book is the perfect accompaniment to a good field guide such as New Holland's Photographic Guide to the Birds of New Zealand. Birdwatching in New Zealand provides comprehensive information and practical advice on every aspect of birding, with chapters on key birding areas, where to find the most sought-after species, how to get close to birds without disturbing them, and the history of New Zealand birdlife. The country is one of the best in the world in terms of the abundance and diversity of its seabirds, so there is a chapter dedicated to pelagic birding, while other topics covered include bird photography, bird banding, conservation and feeding birds. In short this is a great little guide for anyone interested in birdwatching in New Zealand, and a good gift book too. It offers essential information and tips for interested birdwatchers."--Publisher's description.
