Following on from Birds of Australia, this new book from Don Hadden showcases more than 85 birds that live in some of Australia's direct and hottest regions.
The beauty of these birds, such as the tiny delicate Emuwren that lives exclusively among Spinifex clumps, the unmistakable majestic Wedge-tailed Eagle and the elusive Chestnut-breasted Whiteface of the gibber plains of South Australia, are all captured in their natural environments by peripatetic nature photographer Don Hadden. This book is filled with beautiful photographs in a hardback landscape format.
Don is a retired school teacher who spent many years photographing birds in his spare time. During a stay of 8 years on Bougainville Island he was in the team that rediscovered Heinroth Shearwater, a Bush Warbler, together with the discovery of Thicket Warbler Cichlornis (Sylviinae) as well as a new species of Bush Warbler Cettia which was named after him and is now known as Cettia hadderi.
