A guide to where to see birds in and around Sydney - from Wollongong to the Central Coast and west to the Blue Mountains.

The main section gives precise details about where to look for certain birds. There is also a handy list of Sydney birds, each entry providing information on the best spots to find it, its rarity or otherwise, and helpful tips about its habits and haunts, such as where it roosts or nests.
This invaluable guide will take you to some beautiful places, many of which you may never otherwise discover.
