Enter to win ‘Birding Without Borders’ by Noah Strycker

In 2015, Noah Strycker set himself a lofty goal: to become the first person to see half the world’s birds in one year. For 365 days, with a backpack, binoculars, and a series of one-way tickets, he traveled across 41 countries and all seven continents, eventually spotting 6,042 species — by far the biggest birding year on record.

In this book, Strycker ventures deep into a world of chronic sleep deprivation, airline snafus, breakdowns, mudslides, floods, war zones, ecologic devastation, conservation triumphs, common and iconic species, and scores of passionate bird lovers around the globe. By pursuing the freest creatures on the planet, he gains a unique perspective on the world they share with us — and offers a hopeful message that even as many birds face an uncertain future, more people than ever are working to protect them.
