"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
