Takahē for Bird of the Year 2020 - 4th Nov 2020

It’s the most important election of the year: Bird of the Year voting is now open! 
Hard to Find Books Dunedin is proud to announce its official backing of the Takahē for #birdoftheyear2020! 

Pictured is an 1882 drawing of the (then thought to be extinct) Takahē from a #firstedition of Walter Buller’s Manual of the Birds of New Zealand. This was a precursor to the famous Buller’s Birds and is more like a field guide - featuring information about where to find native birds, what they do when a gun goes off near by and even what some of them taste like! 
This book is SUPER RARE and will set you back $750NZD
