By Geoff Moon
370 colour plates provide the most comprehensive colour coverage of New Zealand birds ever presented in print. They are mainly action photographs, all from the cameras of one naturalist, Geoff Moon.
Some of the birds and some of the activities have never previously been published in colour such as the action colour photographs of the dabchick and kokako, NZ Waders, morepork and kingisher action sequeces.
