Adelaide, R.E.E. Rogers, Government Printer, 1910.
Octavo, [ii], 30 pages plus 12 full-page chromolithographs (by Alfred Vaughan after drawings by C. Wall).

A Special Bulletin issued by the South Australian Department of Intelligence. 'The purpose of this book is not to catalogue or to scientifically describe our native birds; but to bring prominently before the public, the police, and others in authority, and more especially the children in our State, those of our protected native birds that most often fall victims to thoughtless boys and sportsmen'. A small slip is tipped onto page 5, noting the names of six more birds added to the protected list since the page was printed.
