Birds of the Darwin Region is the first comprehensive treatment of the avifauna of Darwin, a city located in Australia’s monsoon tropics, where seasons are defined by rainfall rather than by temperature.
With its mangrove-lined bays and creeks, tidal mudflats, monsoon rainforests, savannah woodlands and freshwater lagoons, Darwin has retained all of its original habitats in near- pristine condition, and is home or host to 323 bird species. Unlike other Australian cities, it has no established exotic bird species.
