CSIRO Bird Guide Launch

At this month’s Melbourne meeting CSIRO Publishing will release the eagerly awaited and totally new guide to the birds of Australia, featuring over 4700 images by artists Jeff Davies, Peter Marsack and Kim Franklin, and detailed texts by Peter Menkhorst, Danny Rogers and Rohan Clarke.

The scuttlebutt is that this will be the most advanced field identification guide ever published in Australia.

Drop in next Wednesday night 24th May at 7:30 pm to meet some of the authors and artists and learn why this guide is different!
