Apropos Geoffrey’s post about the above forthcoming book. One time, while I was reviewing National Capital Planning Authority expenditure, a pragmatic public servant type pointed to an entry that referred to support for publication of  Birds of the Australian Capital Territory – An Atlas and inquired, “Is this someone’s idea of a joke?”


Later on he saw me with a field guide and was quite taken with it viz, “I never knew such books existed.” He bought a copy for his children at Christmas and the family became ardent birdwatchers. Here’s hoping they retain the ardour.
