Perhaps heavily inclusive of material from this book?Murray, do you happen to know the authors of the Australian Estrildid finch species accounts?
Yes, I wonder if it's the Parrotfinch in the Philippines that James Eaton Discovered but I've yet to see that written up?When you go into the Webshop section, it shows there are separate Dutch and English editions being published.
No, I don't know if there has been anyone from Australia involved in the species accounts; I can see some of the photos are by Australian photographers. HANZAB would be the most up to date source for the Australian species I think.
Did you notice it promises "description and photos of a new estrildid finch species"?
The new book has nothing to do with the book from Derek Goodwin.Perhaps heavily inclusive of material from this book?

I think the cagebird market is definitely a target when you see the information re 'clutch size, incubation, fledging' which isn't something you see in many guides.Obviously aimed also at cagebird keepers. But estrildids are cute and beautiful, it is easy to overlook that.
