A fascinating local field guide for Geelong, using records from the Geelong field naturalist club (1880-1932). Shedding light on the history of the abundant birdlife of Geelong in the 1830s, the book describes how “wild turkeys” were then often part of the dinner fare. Including profiles of people who have made a significant contribution to understanding the area’s plants and animals,this is a wonderful record of the history of local flora and fauna, and the two field naturalists clubs of Geelong.
