I can spot a pigeon, humming bird..., but I'm not a birder. The main character has been a birder since he was very young. He is a high school counselor who has made it a habit of finding dead bodies on his birding trips. It's too bad the book didn't come with bird photos. I might have learned something about the birds he described in the book.

This was a very enjoyable mystery about a bird watcher that finds a dead body while looking for birds. I really liked the characters and storyline of this book and plan on reading more from this author. It really held my interest and kept me wondering who the killer was!

I enjoyed reading a murder mystery set in the birding world. I found it surprisingly believable, especially when you consider the big money involved in the wind energy industry and the fights over where wind turbines are appropriate. Fun book.

Story line sounded a bit hokey but improved over time. The birding part was the worst of it. No one is that lucky, three or was it four rarities in one less than ideal birding day. But the "murder" story was interesting and developed well.

Found this to be an interesting weave of mystery with birding. Characters had depth while story had been filled out with enough intrigue to keep me reading. Author has definitely found an interesting line for mystery stories.

I loved reading a mystery that I didn't have to skip over the bad language. I learned a lot and enjoyed reading about places I have visited like the Arb thanks Jan for a good read!

Yeah, the bird connection wasn't enough to keep me reading this one.
