Hi all,

On the subject of a subject of popular bird watching fiction - I can recommend 
a whodunit by Ann Cleeves called appropriately "A Bird in the Hand".

It's a full of great bird stuff - fanatical twitcher chasing a tic, radical 
conservation [- keep up the good work comrade Night Parrot], sex, and one of 
the best birders in England found dead, lying in a marsh with his head bashed 
in and his binoculars still around his neck.

Details: A BIRD IN THE HAND Ann Cleeves, Ballantine Group, Paperback,
