Greatly revised and expanded, the new edition of this highly respected guide is the must-have reference for birds in the New Zealand region – including Norfolk and Macquarie Islands, and the Ross Dependency, Antarctica.


Checklist of the Birds of New Zealand provides details of the nomenclature, taxonomy, classification, status, and distribution (current, historical, and fossil) of every known living and extinct species of New Zealand bird. For the first time, it also includes complete synonymies.


More than 50 birds have been added to the new edition, along with thorough bibliographic references, updated maps, a list of Māori bird names, and a full index.
