2005. A field guide for residents and visitors to the Top End of Australia. This book is well regarded in the Top End where it serves as the most comprehensive bird book. It also has international appeal to those seeking to visit this part of Australia where the wildlife really is still wild. This second edition builds on the first which, besides acting as an invaluable identification guide, also passes on snippets of fascinating Aboriginal information in regard to the birds and the landscape. There has been considerable updating of information throughout the book for this new edition.
