Our best selling booklet includes birds that have few or no relatives alive in the world today. In Māori eyes they are under the protection of Tāne - "Tāne mata nui" - "Tāne of the big eyes". He can see all you do – for he is a god. On Earth he sees through the eyes of the birds that he created, and they are his voice too: "te waha o Tāne". In this book are ornithological details and general observations on 70 of the most common land and sea birds. Fine colour illustrations by Peter Scaife.
