Reviews

“The funniest field guide you’ll ever buy.” ―Birdwatching Daily

“Aficionados will find themselves squawking with laughter at the ingenuity and mock-seriousness of this engaging volume by three avid birders.” ―Publishers Weekly

“It’s great fun, and without it you’ll never know about some of North America’s more ‘difficult’ species, such as the Long-ranged Target Duck, Warbling Cormorant, Spoon-billed Hummingbird or Military Warbler… With the holiday season on the way, this little gem makes the perfect gift for any North American birder, or you could buy it as a small treat for yourself. Highly recommended.” ―Arizona Birder
