Included on the notables list for the CBCA (Children's Book Council of Australia) 2022 book awards!

The Bush Birds consists of twelve riddles for readers to guess which Australian native bird, commonly found in open forests or woodlands, is being depicted. Lift the hidden flap on each double page to find out the answer. These birds are maybe a bit less well known than the twelve birds in my first book, Kookaburra Kookaburra. But I hope that by interacting with the riddles and illustrations readers will soon familiarise themselves with these beautiful birds and find enjoyment in seeking them out while out on their bushwalks.

Suitable for ages 2 to 10. Young children will enjoy being read to and finding the lift the flaps, older children might enjoy answering the riddles and the more detailed info at the back. 

Information about each bird can be found at the back, as well as a few tips for birding and helping with identifying your spottings!

The illustrations are all created from dry point etchings which have been hand coloured with watercolour paints.

This book is self published using my own publishing label - Black Cockatoo Books

I also have a CARD GAME to go with this book (see separate listing.)  

Birds included in this book - White-browed Scrubwren, Red-browed Finch, White-winged Chough, Spotted Pardalote, Diamond Firetail, Scarlet Robin, Grey Shrikethrush, Brown Treecreeper, Golden Whistler, Dusky Woodswallow, White-plumed Honeyeater, Fantailed Cuckoo.

PLEASE NOTE - I also have a COMBO DEAL if you wish to buy the book and game together, see separate listing.
