Rare Encounters With Ordinary BirdsBook - 2004
Some Birdwatchers will hop the red-eye to Costa Rica if a rare species is reported to be in residence. Lyanda Lynn Haupt, a naturalist who has traveled the globe in search of prize avian sightings, makes the argument for sticking close to home. The author's encounters with Varied Thrushes, Woodpeckers, and Winter Wrens bring forth wonderful ruminations on song and sound, our place in nature, and notions of enchantment in forested places -- in your backyard or beyond.
