Australian Birds, their Nests and Eggs (Facsimile Edition)

A guide to the nests and eggs of Australian birds that are known to breed in Australia and on Australian offshore islands
Table of
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.

He wrote several books on Australian birds in the 1970s culminating with A Field Guide to Nests and Eggs of Australian Birds in 1980 which he then updated and re-published in 2004. He died in 2007
