Hey Everybody,
    Still working on planning for my upcoming year and have a few questions.  I 
am looking for your recomendations for a couple field guides for Australia.  I 
currently have Pizzey and Knights field guide which has been helpful for me to 
get familiar with Australian birds but I would love to have a couple different 
ones for comparison.  Any suggestions?  I have heard good things about the 
Princeton guide but am open to suggestions.
    Also, I don't even know where to start on bird song cds.  Any collections 
that are particularly good?  I am starting from scratch here.
    Third, any suggestions for recent Bird Finding Guides?  I have Turner and 
Turner as well as Bransbury's Where to Find Birds in Australia which is a bit 
old.  How accurate is Turner and Turner?  Have there been a lot of changes in 
bird distribution or specific spots since it was written?  Any other good ones 
to suggest?
    Finally, I would be interested in any good general books on Australia, 
natural history, field guides for other taxa, etc, etc.  Is there any resource 
that tells a bit about the different habitats that includes some pictures.  As 
I am reading and researching I often am struggling to picture the different 
types of forests and stuff because I have zero expereince with the various 
Eucalyptus varieties.
    Alright, thats a lot but I probably will have more questions in the 
upcoming weeks.  I am really getting excited.
