Because of its isolation Tasmania does not have as many natural predators as mainland Australia. As a result, Tasmania boasts over 200 species of birds, some of which are found nowhere else in Australia. This comprehensive field guide combines information to aid the identification of birds found in Tasmania with photographs of each species in its natural habitat. Bird entries are organized into six groups: waterbirds; birds of prey; rails and hens; waders; gulls and terns; owls, parrots and kingfishers; and songbirds. Each entry includes: information on identification, behaviour, voice, habitat, and breeding, accompanied by a colour photograph and distribution map.
