Bird Doggerel is a collection of humorous and mostly accurate poems about birds, written by Warren Clements and illustrated with examples of the comic strip Nestlings, which ran in The Globe and Mail from 1979 to the early 1990s. Sandra Eadie, an expert birder, supplied the serious information about the birds that was distilled into lines of frequently rhyming verse.

Bird Doggerel

Sample verse:

The American White Pelican

The American white pelican
At hunting is no slouch.
He will scoop up fish, as well he can
In his expanding pouch.
He displays a nine-foot wing span
And his body is immense.
Any fish who’d linger near him
Is a fish with zero sense.
