I agree this guide is excellent but I can't understand why they chose to 
blatantly steal the cover design from the National Geographic Society Field 
Guide to the Birds of North America.  All they did was replace the American 
birds with Australian birds (example: Wedgetail for Bald eagle).

Furthermore I was a bit surprised at how infrequently the text explicitly 
describes the differences between similar species.  It would have been really 
nice for say each thornbill description to have this information.
