Synopsis The origin of New Zealand birds is a continuing story with many theories.

Garry Sheeran has dug up what professionals are re-discovering about the origin of New Zealand birds with the help of modern scientific tools. A particular theme is the influence of Australian avifauna on New Zealand's bird life.

Garry outlines his layman's latter-day interest in birds with enthusiasm, originality and charm. He also traces how the origin stories of birds are closely connected to the origins of the islands and continents on which they are found. There is specific origin stories of more than 80 mainly land and shore birds which traces their possible connection to Australian birds.

This book is aimed as much at readers with little knowledge of New Zealand's bird life as it is at enthusiastic and knowledgeable birders.
