Book Description

June 30 2005
Just when you thought you could take birdwatching seriously again, Ben, Cathryn, and John Sill have taken another laugh-out-loud look through their bizarro binoculars. This time even the birdwatchers themselves aren't safe.

Just when you thought you could take birdwatching seriously again, Ben, Cathryn, and John Sill have taken another laugh-out-loud look through their bizarro binoculars. The world of ornithology will never be the same. This time even the birdwatchers themselves aren't safe.

In Beyond Birdwatching, the Sills have turned their wicked wit on the entire world of birdwatching in a hysterical parody of your favorite birding magazine. Beyond Birdwatching offers the familiar magazine features, but with a twist. This is the perfect gift for the bird enthusiast in your life.

Buy this book and laugh your head off or give it as a gift to any person you would wish to see with a laughed-off head. It's funny, actually... Plus, I can really recommend the one time magnification binoculars advertised in there, no more looking in the wrong side seeing everything so annoyingly small... Tea kettle tea kettle...
