Illustration by John C. Sill.

Aficionados will find themselves squawking with laughter at the ingenuity and mock-seriousness of this engaging volume by three avid birders. Consider the Sills' commitment to jargon-free birding terminology: in their guide, ``ill tempered,'' ``nocturnal migration,'' ``feed actively'' and ``flock'' become ``fowl behavior,'' ``fly by night,'' ``pig out'' and ``whole bunch.'' The 32 fanciful species described, complete with superb, realistic color drawings that reflect John Sill's considerable skill as a wildlife illustrator, range from the droll to the hilarious: Skia, or Sasquatch Yeti, recognized by their big, ski-type feet; Least Minitwit, or Awfulii Smallus Jr.a sampling of this ``itsy bitsy'' creature is obtained by covering a flyswatter with foam rubber ``since squished birds cannot be legitimately added to a life list.''
