There are over 9,000 species of bird on the planet. Dan Koepell's father has seen over 7,000 of them. He's been compiling his 'big list' since boyhood in New York and it has taken him to every continent on earth in search of Great Tits. His obsession has been a complicated one - cause and effect of career decisions, a broken marriage and a strained relationship with his son. But it's what defines the old man and it's only through sharing his passion for birds that father and son are reconciled.
More about love and life than ornithology, 'To See Every Bird on Earth' is a touching, unique and, above all, fascinating memoir.
