    This comprehensive field guide to the birds of Western Australia includes detailed descriptive text, distribution maps and photographic illustrations of 486 species, covering the vast majority of sedentary birds and regular migratory birds.

    Most of the photographs have been taken by Author Simon Nevill himself, showing the birds in their natural habitats. The majority of the information imparted in this guide comes from Simons personal experience over the last forty years of bird watching in Australia, giving the guide a more personal tone. 

    Although born in the UK, Simon Nevill has spent most of his life in Australia and the last 40 years watching birds. He ran bird tours for over 20 years, taking clients overseas and to every state in Australia including all the main desert regions of this vast country. In the process, he has seen the vast majority of its land birds.
