About this book

From the monotonous lark to the rough-faced shag, these poor birds have us all asking: Are ornithologists OK?

Some people will literally name all the birds instead of going to therapy, and this book exposes all the weird and wonderful monikers these poor feathered creatures have been tarred with. From the go-away-bird and the common loon to the sad flycatcher and the sombre tit, we seriously have to wonder why such disturbed ornithologists even went into this line of work.

Tits, Boobies and Loons is for all fans of birds, language and rude words. Or anyone who secretly considers themselves a bit of a red-rumped bush tyrant.

Biography

Stuart Royall is a writer, creative director, occasional filmmaker and bird influencer. His concern for the unfortunately-named drab seedeater prompted him to write Tits, Boobies and Loons, a book in defence of all the maligned birds out there.
