Jones, Matthew, Duade Paton

One of the best collections of images of Australian birds ever compiled.
This lavishly illustrated book showcases beautiful photography which depicts the country’s wild birds in their natural habitats. There is a strong focus on endemic bird species and families, while the authors have specialised in portraits and behavioural shots. Subjects range from soaring albatrosses and hunting raptors, to rarely seen views of skulking emu-wrens and quail-thrushes.

Chapters focus on habitats such as bushland, coast and gardens, and on aspects of bird life and behaviour such as breeding, feeding and flight. Accompanying text enhances the photos by outlining facts regarding ID, behaviour, the circumstances in which the image was taken, photography tips, and much more besides. The pages are packed with action shots, close-ups, panoramics and much more, making Australian Birds in Pictures a wonderful companion for all nature and wildlife enthusiasts and bird lovers.
