This reference guide to birds found in New Zealand answers 65 commonly asked questions about bird behaviour in both urban and wild situations. The questions are grouped into chapters corresponding to areas of interest such as: human attitudes to birds; possible conflicts between bird and human lifestyles; unusual birds (including rare sightings and new immigrants); why birds look and behave the way they do; how birds are affected by natural disasters as well as human-originated disasters; and first aid for birds. Also included is a six-page "Bird Finder", a reference tool that simplifies the problems of looking up an unidentified bird.
