Adventures of a Louisiana Birder: One Year, Two Wings, Three Hundred Species

by Professor Marybeth Lima

In Adventures of a Louisiana Birder, Marybeth Lima chronicles five years in which she chased and 'listed' birds across the state--from Shreveport to Slidell--with her spouse, Lynn. With more than 61 road trips covering 11,626 miles, $2,616 spent on gas, and 300 species identified, Lima reveals both the arduous and uplifting sides of her travels--including nemesis birds and embarrassing misidentifications alongside the hardships of Lynn's near-death and Lima's mother-in-law's decline in health. A tale of competition and camaraderie within a community that traverses Louisiana's diverse, lush, and endangered habitats, Adventures of a Louisiana Birder shows how the joy of birding can bind people together, even in the face of adversity.
