Description

Most people dream of packing in their humdrum city life, selling up and
heading off into the unknown for a life of adventure. For Ruth Miller
and Alan Davies this dream became a reality, albeit with a twist; they
decided to pack in their jobs, sell their house and take on the
ultimate birder's challenge - to smash the world record for the number
of species seen in one calendar year.



This book is the story of their great expedition, searching for birds
from Ecuador to Ethiopia via Argentina, Australia and Arizona. We
follow this birding odyssey as they rachet up the species and the
stamps in their passports, sharing in amazing birding experiences such
as monkey-hunting Harpy Eagles in the Brazilian rain forest, seedsnipes
in the Peruvian highlands and lekking bustards in South Africa, all
leading to the ultimate question - will they break the magic 4,000?



Written in an accessible style, this book will be of great interest to
birders, readers of travel literature, and to people who simply enjoy a
good adventure!
