Might be: the date is about right.  I don't remember that name at all,
though.  Which is ridiculous: I know exactly what the cover looked like, a
Puffin, mostly blue, and so on,. but the author's  name is a gap.

And thank you, all, for the reassurance that bower birds are found in
Australia;  I'd hate it to have been Swiss-Familyish about zoology.

I asssume that hoop-snakes are mythical, as they were in that book?  :-)
