Book: Australian Bird Guide

Does anybody know when the revised edition of the Australian Bird Guide (CSIRO) will be available outside of AU and NZ? Especially when it will be available to purchase on Amazon?

Why didn't you just check Amazon?

I'm curious to know what the differences from the 1st ed which is only two years old, are?

My guess is that it will include much updated taxonomy, of the robins, for example?

I did check but wasn't sure. The image of book's front cover is still that of the first edition.

According to CSIRO Publishing: "This Revised Edition includes updated maps, artwork and species accounts, reflecting current knowledge of the biology and distribution of Australia's birds."

Still a very short time between editions.

The Collins is about 10 years iirc which seems about right imo.
