New Zealand and its neighbouring islands are surrounded by a great expanse of ocean stretching away beyond the horizon for thousands of kilometres. Over these restless waters, a multitude of large and small oceanic birds rise and fall with the sea, and beat their way into the wind. This guide has been written in response to many requests by both seafarers and interested "landlubbers" for an accurate, easy to use guide to the oceanic birds frequenting New Zealand waters. Sixty-one birds are listed in this guide.
