Koeppel’s To See Every Bird on Earth: A Father, a Son, and a Lifelong Obsession

To See Every Bird on Earth: A Father, a Son, and a Lifelong Obsession 

Dan Koeppel

A wonderful little memoir of a father and son relationship where the son is a professional journalist and the dad has seen more birds than almost anyone else on earth. This is partly about coming to adulthood and trying to understand the man who helped raise you and its also about the world of “big listers” i.e. folks who travel the world to see new and rare birds. As a dad, and a bit of a birder myself, I really enjoyed this book. Not high literature, but well worth the budding birders time.

Recommended for the enthusiast.
