Description - The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of America by Matt Kracht
A snarky illustrated guide to birds, equal parts profane and funny, based on the eponymous Tumblr. The bulk of the book features 50 birds (real birds assigned names that properly describe the emotions they evoke, like the Goddamned Canada Goose, the Solitary Sand Pooper, the White-Breasted Butt Nugget) and the reasons why they suck, all rendered in affectionate and angry watercolour and ink. Each illustration is accompanied by a host of fun facts about the dumb bird in question: its annoying call, its dumb migratory pattern, its downright tacky markings, and so on. Also included are handy birding tips, migration maps, and other pointers that help give a full context on how frustratingly stupid birds are.
