What Bird is That? circa 1931







What Bird is That? is the classic Australian bird reference written and illustrated by Neville W. Cayley, first published by Angus and Robertson in 1931. These pictures are from the 1953 edition which I bought at a second hand shop in the beautiful town of Port Fairy last weekend.

By the way, my work is now officially odd! Yippee!!!

Hey Sandra W! I have just had the most enjoyable time looking at YOUR blog, the work that you do and the work that you like. It seems we share more than just a name.
I understand you using the pictures from the book -- I am trying not to give into temptation myself...
