The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of the Whole Stupid World

The field guide to dumb birds of the whole stupid worldLet’s face it all birds are fascinating, wonderful, idiotic jerks no matter where in the world they reside.

Following in the footsteps of the bestselling book The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of North America, this hilarious sequel ventures beyond to identify the stupidest birds around the world.

Featuring birds from North and South America, Africa, Asia, Europe, and Oceania, author Matt Kracht identifies the dumb birds that manage to live all over the freaking place with snarky, yet accurate, names and humorous, anger-filled drawings.

This guide book details exactly how much these morons suck with facts about each bird’s (annoying) call, its (stupid) migratory pattern, and its (downright tacky) markings.

Complete with a matching game, bird descriptor checklist, tips on how to identify a bird (you can tell a lot by looking into a bird’s eyes, for example), this profanity-laden book offers a balance of fact and wit that will appeal to hardcore birders and casual bird lovers (and haters) alike.

Perfect for birdwatching and nature enthusiasts, armchair birders (or non-birders), someone who needs a quirky gift for an animal lover friend, and people with serious birders in their lives who want something lighthearted.

Matt Kracht is a writer, illustrator, and amateur birder who enjoys creating books that celebrate the humor inherent in life’s absurdities. Based in Tacoma, he enjoys gazing out the window at the beautiful waters of Puget Sound and making fun of birds.

The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of the Whole Stupid World is published by Chronicle Books and available at selected retailers including Booktopia.
