The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of North America

A humorous look at 50 common North American dumb birds: For those who have a disdain for birds or bird lovers with a sense of humor, this snarky, illustrated handbook is equal parts profane, funny, and—let's face it—true.

The perfect book for the birder and anti-birder alike.

This national bestselling book features common North American birds, such as the White-Breasted Butt Nugget and the Goddamned Canada Goose (A.K.A the White-Breasted Nuthatch and Canada Goose).

Matt Kracht identifies all the idiots in your backyard and details exactly why they suck with humorous , angry ink drawings — it is the essential guide to all things wings, and includes migratory maps, tips for birding, musings on the avian population, and the ethics of birdwatching .

Each bird is accompanied by facts about a bird's (annoying) call, its (dumb) migratory pattern, its (downright tacky) markings, and more.

Makes a great gift:

• A humorous animal book with 50 common North American birds for people who love birds and also those who love to hate birds

• A perfect coffee table or bar top conversation-starting book

• Makes a great Mother's Day, Father's Day, birthday, or retirement gift
