The biggest Australian bird book book, for many, will be that The Australian Bird Guide, for the most part, dispenses with the usual practice of presenting the species in taxonomic order.

The tail reaches its adult length by 65 to 70 days. It is a great book for those interested in native birds because it supplements field guides such as the Morcombe Guide or the Pizzey Guide mentioned above.
