Imaginary book titles

I was paging through a bird book and found some sections which struck me as being rather like the titles of books.

Imagine a Ludlum novel called…


Or a LeCarre book called…

The Accidental Flycatchers
Or an Alan Furst volume called…

Or maybe something by Tom Clancy called…
Buteos Overhead
How about a Ann Coulter commentary entitled…

Loons in Flight
Maybe the vastly overrated Dan Brown could continue his inexplicable streak of high-selling stupid books with…

Pigeons and Doves

Or a Nicholas Sparks goo fest called…

Flight Patterns of Dabbling Ducks
I have a sense that this too should be a book title, but I can’t quite match it….

South Texas Specialties
Hmmmm… Maybe Vince Flynn.

    A Mike Huckabee book called “Christmas Counts” but NOT referring to the usual Audubon Society bird Christmas Count period that is from December 14 – January 5.

  2. Mary Ann says:

    There’s much that could be paired amusingly from birding books and sites (including regional and state ones). Even just from Wikipedia, I’d love to see some author (or government committee??) pairings for:

    Feathers, plumage, and scales

    Resting and roosting

    Territories, nesting and incubation

    Brood parasites

    How about: Viscera of a pigeon

    New World vultures and tubenoses

    use plumage to assess and assert social dominance

    “South Texas Specialties” –a cookbook!

  5. gloriainexcelsis says:

    Vince Flynn? Pursuit of Canada Geese

    There is actually a book called “My Recipes Are for the Birds” with tasty concoctions for all manner of birds.

  6. Arturus says:

    something by Tom Clancy called… Bullets and Birds!

  7. “South Texas Specialties” by Stephen King.

  8. TonyLayne says:

    @Sean: Nah … South Texas Specialties would be either by Larry McMurtry or kinky Friedman.
