It’s time once again for Connect Five Friday, hosted at Book Date by Kathryn – the meme where we share five book/reading things that connect in some way.
I’ve been reading a number of books that involve birding and /or birds and I’m really enjoying them. Here are 5 – some I have read and others I hope to.
Field Notes from an Unintentional Birder by Julia Zarankin. So enjoyed this memoir,
The Someday birds by Charlie’s dad are in hospital across the country and he and his siblings, with the help of a relative stranger, must drive across the country to see him. Charlie feels that finding the birds on his father’s someday list while ensure his father recovers. A most enjoyable MG novel.
H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald. I am reading this memoir for a book club and it is a challenging bit worthwhile read. Macdonald turns to training a goshawk after her father dies.
WANT TO READ
To See Every Bird on Earth by Dan Koppel. This is on my TBR shelf and looks like another interesting memoir.
Birds Art Life by Kyo Maclear. Another memoir that I have been wanting to read for awhile and now have it from the library.
Oh they all look utterly fascinating and I can easily see why you read or want to read them.
Thanks Kathryn. One led to another and then there were so many I could choose from.
I’ve read most of them (or am currently reading) except for “To See Every Bird on Earth”. I’ve just got out from the library “What the Robin Knows” by Jon Young.
They are great reads. Will check that one out after you are done.
I’m a birder too and feel it’s too bad that events around Lake Erie were mostly canceled in May due to the pandemic. We did go out anyway and caught sight of some of the migrating warblers heading north across the lake.
