There was a fictional account called Diary of a Left-handed Birdwatcher that I read a while ago. A group of people meet regularly to bird, and this is the narrator's trip diary.
But I don't recall any interesting i.d.s being made, or other matters that pertain exclusively to birding. Well, one: a fellow brings his girlfriend, and someone remarks later that it must be true love. Why? She didn't have binoculars.
