From Adzebill to Yellow-eyed Penguin.

The story of New Zealand’s Unique Birds covers the deep endemics being the species that can be found nowhere else on earth, and by anyone with the necessary time, patience and fortitude.

It explains why New Zealand became such a haven for birds and how, when and why the early species arrived, and, more importantly, how and why each species evolved to become different to their ancestors.

Each species of birdlife is fully analysed in great detail (from arrival to present day). Human impacts and conservation efforts are explored for each species to the present. The remarkable birdlife of New Zealand has been subject to massive attention from birders, scientists and the general public around the world.


A beautifully researched and visual book that allows people to understand the fragility of our native birds and the history of each species, both extinct and current.
