About this book

Twenty-six anecdotes from around the world were written to amuse and show why the author (and so many others) are so keen on birding. Each 'chapter' is a bird name, beginning with a different letter of the alphabet.

"[...] The drawings by cartoonist Des Campbell contribute wonderfully to what is a great little book for dipping into."
- BTO book reviews

"I have never met Bo Beolens, but I know of him in his Fat Birder guise and through the excellent little book Whose Bird, of which he is co-author, and which is a constant source of reference. When I first delved into the present volume, I wasn’t quite sure what to make of it – but I pressed on and, in the end, found I had enjoyed it, had been amused by some bits of it, and had also learnt a few things. [...] I think some people might enjoy this book, but others may not. It seems a pity to say it, but I suspect it could go onto a bookshelf and never be looked at again."
