Narrator Cheryl Smith engages listeners with this audiobook, part memoir, part nature and social activism. O'Kane, who spent most of her career as a human rights journalist and social activist, became an "accidental birder" in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Her life and worldview changed when she began noticing and observing birds outside of her destroyed home in New Orleans. Smith moves seamlessly between the author's personal stories and her scientific explanations of birds and what their responses to the environment can teach us. Her commanding, unhurried delivery, injected with wonder, creates an accessible and heartwarming listening experience for both nonbirders and nonscientists. An informative and inspiring listen that elicits awe and reflection. V.T.M. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2024]
