The Mincing Mockingbird Guide to Troubled Birds allows anyone to quickly identify psychotic, violent or mentally unstable bird speciesand provides the perfect gag gift for your bird loving (or fearing) friends and family. A humorous, illustrated, pocket field guide describing where to find—or where to avoid—the most disturbed North American birds. 

Throughout the book the reader will discover tales of murder, assault, mental breakdowns, obesity, drug abuse and infidelity among the birds. This guide is used and recommended by law enforcement agencies and ignored by leading ornithologists.

Editorial Reviews

“This book will have you doubled over with laughter….It’s so much fun.”—Marney Rich Keenan, The Detroit News“For too long we have enjoyed our assumed power over the birds, reducing them to fetish objects of voyeuristic desire. Binoculars in hand, we stalk them in the forest, ignorant of the fact that they are stalking us. The Mincing Mockingbird’s new book documents the dangers we face. The bird rebellion has begun.”—Paste Magazine
