From well-known nature and adventure writer Dan Koeppel, whose work has appeared in Audubon and National Geographic Adventure, comes this true story of one bird watcher's incredible achievements. When the author's father Richard was 11 years old, he spotted a Brown Thrasher, and his fascination with birds began. Now a "Big Lister", Richard is one of only 10 or so people to have recorded more than 7,000 species in his notebook. This is the remarkable chronicle of his travels across the globe in pursuit of his fixation. It is also a thoughtful examination of the natural world and a touching father/son story. To See Every Bird gets to the very core of a pastime that is a hobby for millions, and nothing less than an obsession for some.More

One of my all time favourites
Son, Dad, Birds
The performer was very good. He made the story more interesting.
The son's quest to get to know his father.
The son as narrator.
Impossible, too long. I enjoyed the book in 1.5 hour segments with my blue tooth headset during my morning 4 mile walks.
I learned a great deal about birding and in particular, the world of the big listers.
I recommend it.
