Product description

Review

"There are a lot of great bird field identification guides, but after a day afield with The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of North America, you will never look at birds or birdwatching the same again...You need this book if you want to lighten up your birdwatching."

-Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette



"This genius handbook by Matt Kracht takes a humorous approach to identifying 50 "dumb" North American birds - highlights include the "White-Breasted Butt Nugget" and the "Goddamned Canada Goose," along with facts about the birds' "annoying" calls, "dumb" migratory patterns, "downright tacky" markings, etc."

-Refinery 29



Holiday Gift Pick A delightfully juvenile fake field guide about birds with such names as White-Breasted Butt Nugget and the Goddamned Canada Goose (or White-Breasted Nuthatch and Canada Goose as they are commonly known.) This book exists solely to make us giggle.
-BookRiot

Matt Kracht's hilarious, fully illustrated, obscenely satirical spoof, 'The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of North America.' The bizarrely-behaving 50 birds that Kracht describes are technically real - the White-Breasted Nuthatch, the Canada Goose, etc. - though the author can't resist giving them insulting nicknames (The White-Breasted Butt Nugget, for example) while pointing out their various annoying peculiarities.
-Petaluma Argus-Courier

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
