    Nature writing seems to be the in thing to be reading at the moment Wander into your local bookshop and you will find lots of recently published books by people who have recently discovered the healing benefits of nature, or who are extolling the virtues of putting the screen down and looking at something else.When you have ventured outside, it helps to have a guide to the things that you might see These have always been popular, especially when it comes to identifying the LBJ s little brown jobs that make up a large number of small brown passerine birds, many of which are notoriously difficult to distinguish, even for experts.This though is a guide with a difference It is filled with beautiful sketches that are so much like the art of Thomas Berwick, but rather than having details of regular birds, Reynolds has gathered details of birds like the Hipster Pelican, the Enervated Eagle and Buff Petrel, not forgetting the Snub Gull and the Fatalistic Falcon.Astute Owls As much as you don t want an astute owl to be correct, the astute owl is correctHabitat Lurking nearby whenever you make a mistakeIdentifying Characteristics An unnerving sense of timingAs you might have guessed from the above, this is a humorous bird identification book It gives a peek into the characteristics of these new birds and a fairly ok, very broadminded insight into what they might be thinking I really liked the imaginative bird names and the thought he d put into their habits and characters The images are excellent too, in particular, the colour ones, they portray the bird and also show the aloof, contemptuous or angry look that the artist and author were aiming for There is a lot of swearing in here, which might not be everyone s cup of tea.

    I may be a little biased as I was one of the 1,800 who pledged to get this book made via Unbound, but I loved this book It s flipping funny, very sweary, beautifully illustrated and not for those who are easily offended But if you re looking for a book to escape the misery of the world we live in nowadays , it s a total blast And I won t ever listen to birds chattering away in the garden in the same way again, knowing they are probably saying many of the phrases in this book Rude birds From the wise and insightful to the downright rude, it s perfect escapism, hilarious and I loved every single effin page of it More please

    What can I say about this book apart from apologising profusely to the author, publisher and blogtour organiser for putting the wrong date in my diaryI was both a month ahead and behind myself, top organisational skills there It is both stupendously awesome, beautifully made and pant wettingly funny It makes you look clever to the unitiated it appears to be a reference book from a distance so is unlikely to scare Great Aunt Margaret unless she gets close enough to read the swears This was everything it does not purport to teach you the ways and meanings of the language of birds, it says this right at the start But what you somehow, magically, leave Effin Birds with is this impression, that by an odd osmotic effect, you are somehow closer to the very creatures that are telling you to fuck right off.And keep on fucking off.Yes you, over there, keep it going until we cannot see you any longerandperfect It even worked this mornign on our wherever we can fit them in walks on the beach not a single damn bird was there Not even Zoltan, the possibly a crow, definitely a blackbird, see I told you it wouldn t really teach you the species of flying bastards who always lurks by our car was gone I ran up and down the beach and not a single bird could be heard I was brandishing the book and everything My long suffering book widower of a husband has gotten used to random peels of laughter as I am reading, and no longer checks if I have finally toppled over into insanity, he was absolutely delighted to see me chortling loudly but reminded me that hand gestures in cars are inevitably thought of in a negative manner by other drivers, who responded to my gesticulations with ones of their own.Ahem.So, we have this searing analysis it is filthy rich in swear words, hilarious, beautifully illustrated and narrows the gap between human kind and the avian race somewhat It s lovingly rendered, bloody funny and a totally brilliant Christmas present It will keep your favourite book blogger quietly laughing in a corner but will not stop them thrusting random pages into loved ones faces with exhortations of LOOK Effin Birds is, in short, effin marvelous, effin funny and effin wonderful.Effin read it.

    OH MY, this is one of the funniest, sarcastic and oh so relatable book of nonsense I ve ever read Full of fowl language and just hilarious This is beautifully illustrated, with vintage illustrations of the birds, even including some stunning Audubon pictures too.I can see this being used as memes everywhere as so many resonate with life, work and dealing with stupid people.I love it.Thank you to Anne Cater and Random Things Tours for the opportunity to participate in this blog tour and for the promotional materials, and a free copy of the ebook I also own a copy via sponsorship on Unbound This is my honest, unbiased review.

    It s like an Audubon, if he included relatable captions.

    Is this book childish and somewhat vulgar Yes.Is it funny and enjoyable Yes.10 10 on enjoyment, I ve waited quite a while for this book and it was worth it completely There were a couple things I didn t like as an overly particular bird nerd, but rest assured this didn t lessen how much I liked the book overall 1, Names of birds should be capitalized like proper nouns I know that s not the correct like editing way to do it, but it makes things much easier to understand There s only one species called Yellow Warbler, but there are quite a few yellow warblers 2, some birds matched with their captioned images, i.e a grebe picture was for a species called grebe, but others were different, such as a wren image named a hawk Again, just being picky, lol I also wish there were fun binomial names I just hope we don t have to wait for a second edition as long as we had to wait for the Sibley v2 app.

    I was really looking forward to reading Effin Birds I am totally fascinated by birds and have always wondered what exactly they are saying when they talk I love all the different sounds and the way they communicate with each other I actually used to wish that I could take a course in bird language so that I could understand their language and maybe even communicate with them It would make my trips to the park so much worthwhile I could talk to the ducks and the herons.I found this to be a very amusing and light hearted read I really liked the cover and I thought the pictures of the birds were lovely I especially loved the pages that were in colour Beautiful, absolutely beautiful What a great idea for a book This book is split into two parts with descriptions of the birds including their habitat and identifying characteristics To me it was as if different people were being described and a lot of it actually rang true I never even realised that birds can be found literally anywhere including in supermarkets or in offices and now I will be keeping an eye out for them Perhaps I should carry this guide around with me so that I can identify the birds quickly.It seems that virtually every bird when they are talking are basically saying to go away in one way or another, only their language is much colourful Naughty birds Where did they learn those words I wonder Perhaps it was when they started going to school or hanging around with their mates This guide actually has got some very good tips because I m sure we all feel like the birds do at times.I read this book from cover to cover, but it is the sort that can be dipped into at any time and is a great stress reliever Effin Birds may not be for you if you don t like swear words However, if that doesn t bother you then I can guarantee that you will enjoy it.
