Birds about Water: Beyond the Bird Garden

Birds about Water: Beyond the Bird Garden (1st edition)

By Bolt, Fay

In Fay Bolt's new ebook we are beyond her bird garden and close to water. In 'Birds about Water' she asks... Have you ever seen hundreds of godwits roosting on a lonely beach? Or a rare white heron poised to stab a fish... or spoonbills slicing their broad bills through rippling ...water? Fay Bolt has-and she has watched shy pied stilts reflected in water as they perform delicate ballet movements. She contrasts these 'extra-ordinary' water-birds with squawking, quarrelsome, 'ordinary' seagulls scavenging on a wild shore, the birds we all think we know. Fay's riveting camera images of them illustrate her perceptive descriptions and memories of New Zealand's remarkable water-birds-some of them rare, some endangered. She also focuses her lens and her thoughts on ordinary water-birds that we often scarcely notice, birds that are also special. All her birds about water have beauty, to be treasured and protected.
