Reviews of "To See Every Bird on Earth" and "A Supremely Bad Idea"

Here are a couple of new reviews.

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

Review of A Supremely Bad Idea: Three Mad Birders and Their Quest to See It All

Each is about birders who are driven to see as many birds as they can. But other than that, they couldn't be more different. The first is a serious biography, while the second is a hilarious recounting of birding trips. Both are worth reading.

I just finished A Supremely Bad Idea. I really enjoyed the book. I wonder if the author will be hounded by questions about tomatoes at public speaking events?

Very true! Hopefully he'll have a good sense of humor about it, cause he definitely opened himself up there.

Bad Idea!

Hi,
What's with the tomato discussions!About half way through the the book
up to the cerulean warbler trip!Talking about c.warblers have heard that they were seen in
Ontario last year,that's odd wouldn't they not keep going north from Minnesota
to where I am in Manitoba!What's their flyway?Atlantic coast then a sharp turn through Ontario to Minnesota?
BIRDS!Darrell
