Before human settlement, New Zealand was shrouded luxuriently in evergreen forest, from the subtropical bush of the north to the mossy beech forests of the south. This diverse and abundant habitat has sustained a unique but now reduced bird life.
In New Zealand Forest Birds and their world Geoff Moon reveals the fascinating lives and habits of 30 species. His text, honed from more than70 years of personal observation, is matched by his unique photographic archive.
Geoff Moon OBE (1915-2009), veterinary surgeon, Honorary Fellow of the Photographic Society of New Zealand and Associate of the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain wrote and illustrated several major works on birds. His contribution to the research and documentation of New Zealand's bird life is widely acknowledged.
