The first comprehensive guide to bird-watching locations in Canterbury, including a list of bird species that can be found in the region and where to find them. Detailed directions guide one to the location, then describe where the special birds there may be found. Many bird-watching locations are illustrated with line maps. The guide is divided into chapters according to the districts that make up Canterbury (or significantly different habitats). Each chapter has an introduction describing the special birdlife in that area, and usually a map showing the general location of each bird-watching location.
