Is it a peahen, or just a pea?

Do you have trouble distinguishing between a crow and a crocus, or a parrot and a carrot? You may want to refer to How To Tell The Birds From The Flowers: A Manual of Flornithology for Beginners. (caches inside)

The Google cache of the page, but with no images (the best part) and my mirror, with images. Tangentially related, and what I was actually searching for when I came across the book: edible flowers, with lots of recipes. To make these, you really DO have to know the difference between a crow and a crocus.

Will Cuppy wrote a parody nature guide called "How To Tell Your Friends From the Apes." Grab it if you see it-- it's awesome!

[this is good]

I know I've seen this before, but I'm not sure if it was on MeFi or if I've encountered the actual book, so I certainly won't be the one to call double-post.

Excellent. I remember having this book when I was a kid. Maybe the next time I visit the packrats parents I'll see if I can find it...
