I like Hand Guide to the Birds of New Zealand, by Heather & Onley.  It's a
very reasonable size to travel with and comprehensive (with subantarctic
islands as well).  It's all illustration and laid out like Sibley's, with
related birds displayed all together on the right page and maps &
description on the left.  Google Books preview:
