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

"The funniest field guide you'll ever buy." --BirdWatching Daily

"This book is funtastic! It's John James Audubon meets Dr. Seuss magnified by the creative genius of one of North America's best known (and funniest) bird artists. A Field Guide to Little-Known and Seldom-Seen Birds of North America may not supplant (or even augment!) your favorite field guide. But I promise, absolutely promise, it will make you laugh, cover to cover." --Pete Dunne, author of birding books and director of New Jersey Audubon's Cape May Bird Observatory

"You need this book--you really do. Without it, you have zero chance of ever seeing a multi-toed Snorkel Bill or an eastern Spider Spitter in the wild. With this book, your chances will double! Okay, twice zero is still zero, but you'll have a lot more fun if you know what we're all missing out there. This is a beautiful treasure trove of the world's most amazing nonexistent birds."--Kenn Kaufman, author of birding books, including Kaufman Field Guide to Birds of North America

"If there's one thing I adore more than birds, it's funny bird watchers. In their impossible-to-put-down book, the authors reveal themselves to be not only funny, but also clever and creative bird-watching geniuses. Every species account contains savory bits of knowledge you didn't know you needed to know about birds that (probably) don't exist, served up with visual and written puns in a silly smorgasbord that will have you turning each delightful page, hungry for another helping of laughter. John Sill's artwork brings to life these species that (we hope) only exist in the twisted minds of the three Sills, who are, after all, the funniest bird watchers on the planet. We're just not sure which planet..."--Bill Thompson, III, author of birding books and editor of Bird Watcher's Digest
