How many birds is that? : from the forty-spotted pardalote on Bruny Island to the white-tailed tropicbird on Cape York

This is a humorous and informative account of the author's quest to notch up sightings of 600 not-so-common Australian birds. A so-called 'twitcher', Sue Taylor is a bird lover who will go to any lengths and travel any distance to achieve her goal. Here, she documents -- in a light and chatty style, and accompanied by many photographs -- the trips, the birds, the Australian landscape, her frustrations and her excitement!
