Jumping to my own defence here - the back of the Eastern Yellow Wag is actually olive in the original plate....can't be blamed for printing darkening!!

I must admit that I also prefer the white cover version. But at the given price differences, I had to have other priorities.

Yeah, prove it! Just kidding :)

I'll modify the review to note this.

Adam, I know you weren't making a big deal, but I do want it to be correct. So I've slightly modified the review to say that the illustration was reproduced too darkly.

I did go with the white one (still waiting for delivery so twiddling my fingers until then), but it was only NZ$10 difference because I think one was discounted at the time.

Got my copy today :)
I only wish that my "Australian Field Guide by M. Morcombe" had paintings of that kind!
That´s pure art, Adam, well done!

The only "downside": I would appreciate if the birds of New Guinea has been covered also.

Cheers Stoney! Yeah, PNG would've been a good addition....and to paint the BoPs would be great too!
