New Zealand’s Backyard Birds is an engaging guide for children to the birds that that they see and hear in their daily lives, those that live in their backyards. Some of these might be native birds, such as the tūī, korimako/bellbird, kererū and pīwakawaka/fantail. But just as likely they will be introduced birds such as the thrush, blackbird, sparrow and starling. New Zealand’s Backyard Birds, a sister publication to the hugely popular book about our insects, New Zealand’s Backyard Beasts, brings to life our most accessible wildlife, with details on the different birds we are likely to see around our homes, and useful background information about birds in general. It is the latest book from leading author and illustrator, Ned Barraud, and will be an essential companion for every Kiwi child.
