112 indexed pages including colour illustrations, glossary and references. With over two hundred species that have been recorded, Canberra and its surrounding region has the richest bird life of any Australian capital city. From the largest bird, the Emu, to the smallest, the Weebill, the birds of Canberra present an ever-changing kaleidoscope of sizes, shapes, colours and sounds. This book is about the birds in and around Canberra gardens or in adjacent Canberra parks and open spaces. It describes the abundance and distribution of birds, and discusses how the birds are likely to be found at different times throughout the year, and in different places. The book also provides some ideas on how your garden may be made more attractive to native birds. The information in these pages is based on findings from the first seventeen years of the Garden Bird Survey (GBS) conducted by the Canberra Ornithologists Group. The survey began in 1981 and is still going. During this period many COG members and other interested people recorded the birds observed in their gardens and in the immediate vicinity. In that time they completed more than 1100 Garden Bird Charts amounting to more than 44,000 weeks of observations at 270 different sites. Dedicated amateurs who have different levels of observational skills have collected the data. Some observers put in more effort than others did. However, because this variability among observers is assumed to be uniform over the 17 years of the survey, we believe that valid comparisons between the years’ results can be made. This book is a good start to encourage interest in, and develop knowledge of, the birds of the Canberra region; to promote and co-ordinate the study of birds; and to promote the conservation of native birds and their habitat.
