Really adorable and nerdy story about an Ontarian twitcher doing his first big year Probably only an interesting read for anyone nerdy enough to know or care what a big year is As a birder you'll probably relate to all the weirdpanicky moments where you try and fail miserably not to embarrass yourself in front of 'serious' birders A lot of why I liked this book is also because I read it at exactly the right moment when I was in the middle of crossing over to the dark side of birding Going from a normal person who likes to spend time outside and learn about natureto one who obsessively makes lists of birds thinks and about doing dedicated birding vacations and is getting close to forgetting why she thought people who do a big year are crazy
