An Un­cer­tain Fu­ture: Aus­tralian Birdlife in Dan­ger by Ge­of­frey Maslen (Hardie Grant, $39.99).

More than just a lovely ad­di­tion to our gar­dens, native birds are vi­tal to the health and sur­vival of our nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment. This de­tailed book weaves beau­ti­ful de­scrip­tion, in­ter­views and anec­dotes with star­tling facts about cli­mate change and the rapid ex­tinc­tion rate of nu­mer­ous Aus­tralian species, in­clud­ing the tiny mallee emu-wren (pic­tured). A must-read.
