The Big Year by Mark Obmascik

A Big Year, for bird watchers, is when one tries to see as many different breeds of birds as possible. Obmascik takes us into this world, trailing three making the attempt and giving the background necessary to have it make sense. On one hand, the prose is uninspiring -- too cute, too hyperbolized -- but the book carries the reader along and gets into theis weird, weird world.
