Connect Five Friday – Birding


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,

Someday Birds 26800718._SY475_

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.


To See Every Bird 1188470._SY475_

To See Every Bird on Earth by Dan Koppel. This is on my TBR shelf and looks like another interesting memoir.

Birds art life 29868587._SX318_

Birds Art Life by Kyo Maclear. Another memoir that I have been wanting to read for awhile and now have it from the library.

  1. 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.
