Staff Reviews


There are birders, and then there are Birders. But what about the rest of us? We all come across that noisy blue pokey one that screams*, the herds of tiny round brown birbs**, and the tubby grey sacks with tiny heads*** but there hasn’t been a specific guide for us meh-birders until now. Crass, blunt, and incredibly accurate, this is a field guide begging to be gifted, loved, and worn down by use. (Either in the field or just showing it off to folks.)

Description


Perfect book for the aviary and anti-aviary alike

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. Featuring 50 common North American birds, such as the White-Breasted Butt Nugget and the Goddamned Canada Goose (or White-Breasted Nuthatch and Canada Goose for the layperson), Matt Kracht identifies all the idiots in your backyard and details exactly why they suck with humorous, yet angry, ink drawings. With The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of North America, you won't need to wonder what all that racket is anymore!
  • Each entry is accompanied by facts about a bird's (annoying) call, its (dumb) migratory pattern, its (downright tacky) markings, and more.
  • The essential guide to all things wings with migratory maps, tips for birding, musings on the avian population, and the ethics of birdwatching.
  • Matt Kracht is an amateur birder, writer, and illustrator who enjoys creating books that celebrate the humor inherent in life's absurdities. Based in Seattle, he enjoys gazing out the window at the beautiful waters of Puget Sound and making fun of birds.
"There are loads of books out there for bird lovers, but until now, nothing for those that love to hate birds. The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of North America fills the void, packed with snarky illustrations that chastise the flying animals in a funny, profane way. " – Uncrate
