Beruldsen, Gordon

First published in 1980, this 2004 edition is a thorough reference guide to nest and egg identification, with all new colour plates and much additional material. Shape, size, colour, number of eggs in a clutch – all help identify the bird to which the eggs belong.  This book carries a strong message to respect the environment that is being explored and to leave the eggs and nests undisturbed.  It is therefore a way for birdwatchers and ornithologists to gain a greater insight into Australian birds without actually having to get close to nests. This volume is a facsimile re-issue of the 2004 edition.
