Know Your New Zealand Birds (Pocket guide)

In Māori eyes they are under the protection of Tāne – “Tāne mata nui” – “Tāne of the big eyes”.  He can see all you do – for he is a god.  On Earth he sees through the eyes of the birds that he created, and they are his voice too:  “te waha o Tāne”.

In this book are ornithological details and general observations on 70 of the most common land and sea birds and their names in te reo Māori.

Fine colour illustrations by Peter Scaife.
