Abstract:

All around the world, birds are the subject of intense, even spiritual, fascination, but relatively few people see the word "bird" as a verb. The author is one who does, and with good reason: He birds (because he can't help it) and he teaches grammar (because he's paid to). An English teacher by profession and an avid birder by inner calling, Cashwell has written a whimsical and critical book about his many obsessions--birds, birders, language, literature, parenting, pop culture, and the human race.
