The belt of islands leading from Australia northeastward to Hawaii offers any number of choice birders' destinations: some 20 families (cassowaries, logrunners, and honeycreepers, for instance) are endemic, while another hundred or so are common, including most of the world's birds of paradise species and an astonishing variety of sunbirds, flycatchers, and nightjars. Wheatley, an accomplished birder and writer, offers a guide to some 200 destinations, with notes on endemic and characteristic populations, other regional wildlife, and lodging and other services. --Gregory McNamee -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.


The fourth guide in a series covering birdwatching sites in the great continents. It describes almost 150 sites in detail and many more in passing. It's primary aim is to help birders make the most of their trips, detailing the endemic and special" birds to be found at each site as well as the more common and "usual" species. Countries are treated alphabetically, with all the practical information required to make the most of a trip and to avoid wasted time. Included are detailed maps and line drawings."

5.0 von 5 Sternen Invaluable! 15. Juni 2006
Von Laszlo Wagner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As usual with the series, this book does a very good job at introducing the "essential" birdwatching sites of a huge region.

Much of it is, for better or worse, devoted to describing the two biggest and most visited countries, Australia and New Zealand. Coverage of these is good, but since there are also single country guides to them you could also use those.

Where this book really becomes invaluable is its coverage of the often little-known archipelagos of Oceania: Melanesia, Polynesia and Micronesia. Few of these countries are often visited by birders, yet even the remotest ones, like Pitcairn, are described. Since other guides to nature reserves of these island nations are basically non-existant, descriptions and maps of remote islands and forested regions are of interest to anyone with an interest in the fauna of the Pacific.

But of course, twitchers are well served too - with lists of endemics, key sites to see each one, suggested itineraries and the like.

A worthy investment for your trip!

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good beginning for the price. 29. Januar 2008

This book is a good survey, but if you are going to want to find the birds and are serious about it you will need a better guide than this. This however is a good reference to get you started.
