Every known Australian bird, including introduced species and the rarest vagrants, is treated in the text and all of these, other than a few of the rarest vagrants, are illustrated. The birds are arranged in their natural orders and genera and an explanation of their classification is given where necessary. The colour ilustrations of both the birds and their habitat are remarkabe for their accurcy and vividness. This is the most colourful and exciting treatment of Australian birds since the works of Gould and Mathews.
