New Zealand is known for its birds, and the melodic quality of their song. Here, in one book and CD package is a selection of 60 of the most popular, important or interesting birds. In the book, each bird entry includes information about habitat, distribution, appearance and behaviour of the bird, along with a description of its calls. Each entry is illustrated with photographs from the renowned collection of Geoff Moon, making identification easy. The CD, contained in a plastic envelope on the book's inside back cover, contains 60 tracks, one per bird, and each track includes up to three different calls, such as alarm, territory and courtship songs. "New Zealand Bird Calls" is an essential guide for any bird enthusiast to enjoy in the field or at home, and it will open up new ways to get to know birds by their calls.
