Birds: they’re just like us! Temperamental, ornery, prone to violent outbursts. At least that’s what Matt Adrian, AKA The Mincing Mockingbird, asserts with his new book Guide to Troubled Birds, which was released this week. A lovely and hilarious tome, the guidebook features humorous portraits of disturbed and agitated featured creatures, as well as brief stories dedicated to each one. To get a taste of this guide to avian torment, check out the brief collection of Adrian’s portraits after the jump.
