The Life List of Adrian Mandrick is about a birdwatcher that I just recently finished. It was okay, I'd give it 3/5 stars.

"This Is How You Lose the Time War" is a fun bit of recent sci-fi that won a bunch of awards. One of the authors is obviously a birdwatcher. Many specific North American references. Bonus points for identifying the birds on the cover (one is easy).On Thu, Mar 25, 2021, 13:55 Robert Lockett <robert.s.lockett...> wrote:Patrick O'Brian's Master and Commander series of seafaring novels (British Navy, early 1800's) features ship's surgeon Stephen Maturin, who is an experienced naturalist.There was/is a set of crime/mystery novels centered around a birder, but I can't conjure the author's name.Bob LockettOn Thu, Mar 25, 2021 at 1:47 PM Jeff Acopian <dmarc-noreply...> wrote:“The REAL James Bond”, by Jim Wright is interesting.

But what about fictional works? Partlybecause their authors happened to be first- or second-hand acquaintances, Irecently read a couple of fun novels where a birder was the lead character:"Nome" and "Border Songs". Can anyone recommend other works of fiction(perhaps partly based on fact) that feature a birder, hopefully in arespectful way?Paul AdamusCorvallis*******UNSUBSCRIBE: www.freelists.org/list/obolOBOL archives: www.freelists.org/archive/obolContact moderator: <obol-moderators...>
