In these entertaining birding anecdotes from around the world, Bo Beolens, alias the 'Fatbirder', traverses many of the planet's wild places, along with his wife Maggie, looking at birds - some familiar, others exotic, a few beyond a person's most extravagant expectations. On the way, he meets up with a wide variety of human, animal and bird characters and experiences a plenitude of amusing and sometimes bizarre happenstances, all told with the author's wellknown flair and panache. Certainly, his travels are a credit to his courage and fortitude in coming to terms with wild birds of different plume, hue and voice. The book, with a prelude by celebrity naturalist and broadcaster Mike Dilger, comprises twenty-six alphabetical 'chapters' - starting with A for Anhinga, the Snake-bird, and ending with Z for Zebra Finch - each being accompanied by a humorous drawing by cartoonist and illustrator Des Campbell. A-Z of Birds will surely amuse and entertain all those who have a passion for birds and wish to be inspired by one who already has lots of first-hand experience of how to (usually) get the most out of travelling to far-flung lands to see them.
