Hi birders,

I just found the newest edition of Simpson & Day and took it home (along with the Morcombe and Slater field-guides) because I read in some reports that the Simpson& Day has a great section on bird-families from Australia. Which is information I was looking for because as a Dutchmen I will encounter many "new" birdfamilies on my Queensland trip this year. But the first thing I read in the 7th edition of Simpson & Day is that they removed part of the former handbook!!! Does anyone know whether this handbook part is available on the internet or anywhere else? (They only sell the newest editon down here. And so they should).

My "desktop-experience" with the Australian field-guides sofar;
From the four guides (I already had a very old Pizzey&Knight) the simpson &
Day to my opinion has definitely the superior artwork. The Morecomb has the best determination-clues, and the Slater is a bit of both. The Pizzey has very "antique" artwork (and the best text) but because thats the edition. The artwork of Knight on the mamals of Australia book is a lot better (in my opinion that is).
