            Whether you're 5 years old or 65, it's never too late to get to know the feathered friends in your backyard, and learning their songs will open your eyes to a whole new world. Therefore this beautifully illustrated sound guide is the perfect way to introduce both children and ...adults to the wonders of bird song. Each of the 12 species covered - Morepork, Kaka, Sacred Kingfisher, Grey Warbler, Silvereye, Bellbird, Tui, Fantail, Chaffinch, Song Thrush, Blackbird and Starling - has a short description explaining some fascinating facts about that bird. Then the reader can press the relevant button on the panel on the side of the book and a short burst of the bird's song will be played via the accompanying speaker. The book is aimed in particular at children, but is great fun for all the family and perfect for helping to foster an interest in the amazing wildlife that lives right alongside us in our homes. It's ideal for keeping on the windowsill overlooking the backyard. The species covered have been specially selected as ones that will occur in and around most backyards in the country, however big or small. If you need a reminder of the twittering and fluty song of the Tui, or the Chaffinch's cascade of notes, it is simply a case of pushing the button. All in all this is a perfect title for anyone, young or old, who enjoys the natural world and listening to the songs and calls of our familiar backyard birds.

            From tiny insects to sleek sharks and majestic elephants, this book invites you to explore the animal kingdom up close - from nose to tail. Whether you're interested in specific animal groups such as mammals or birds or have a passion for wildlife photography, this beautiful book... will delight, fascinate, and surprise. DK's elegant new introduction to wild animals is packed with dramatic photography that celebrates their beauty. Crystal-clear diagrams then explain how animals work and describe how they are adapted to do different things and to survive in different environments. The unique nose-to-tail approach, with chapters on different body parts, allows you to focus in on the beauty of the antenna of a moth, the flight feathers of a parrot, or the feeding tentacles of a jellyfish. Fauna also explores how we have depicted animals in art throughout the ages, from zoological drawings that recorded new discoveries to great paintings inspired by a deep connection to the natural world. With fascinating stories, such as how animals communicate, defend their territories, and attract mates, The Science of Animals offers an engaging introduction to the extraordinary diversity of the animal kingdom.

            Shorebirds of New Zealand: Sharing the Margins
              

            Shorebirds of New Zealand: Sharing the Margins (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Woodley, Keith

            Shorebirds of New Zealand is a beautiful, informative and lyrical account of the many shorebirds found here those living and breeding in the same area year after year, those that migrate within New Zealand, and those whose migrations link the hemispheres. It examines the lifecycl...es, habits and histories of our shorebirds, such as red knots (some 50,000 of which reach New Zealand from Siberia annually), or red-necked stints (birds the size of a sparrow that make a similar journey), and our own shorebirds stilts and oystercatchers, terns and gulls, dotterels and wrybills, snipes and godwits. Author Keith Woodley connects these shorebirds with everyday people and the environment, looking into our social and cultural values, the work of researchers and community conservation groups, as well as the ways in which our lives impact those of shorebirds both harmoniously and harmfully. Shorebirds of New Zealand is a significant and thought-provoking book, with many stories to tell and a strong environmental message elegantly stated.
