Have you ever looked a bird dead in the eye and wondered what it was thinking? With Effin' Birds, the most eagerly anticipated new volume in the noble avocation of bird identification, you can venture into nature with confidence.

This farcical field guide will help you identify over 200 birds, but more importantly, for the first time in history, it will also help you understand what these birds are thinking:

The vainglorious grebe is acutely aware of its own magnificence.
The hipster pelican thinks the world is a shitbarge.
The overbearing heron wishes you better luck next time, fucknuts.
The counsellor swallow wants you to maybe try not being a dickhead... and many, many more.

Alongside beautiful, scientifically accurate illustrations and a whole lot of swearing is incisive commentary on modern life and the world we, as humans, must navigate. Or maybe it's just some pictures of effin' birds, okay?

'Funny and legit beautiful' Jane Espenson, co-writer of Buffy the Vampire Slayer

'The idea of combining a pic of a bird with some lazy half-obscenity is really something that would barely amuse elementary school kids... very sad and contrived' Jonathan Kay, serious adult

'Fucking genius' Jane Wiedlin, The Go-Go's

'These damn birds with their snarky, sarcastic comments make me laugh daily' Jodie Sweetin


'This book combines two of my favourite things: birds and vulgarity. Which is why this is probably the best thing ever' Chuck Wendig, New York Times and bestselling author of Wanderers
