Summary

A mother’s memoir about raising a blended family, meditating on a different way of life, and bird-watching with her son, Yeats. Lynn is the mother of a blended family of four children. Birding with Yeats documents the five-year period when she and her youngest son start bird watching, when he’s 13, as a way to spend time in nature and away from everyday stress. She describes the many trips they take together and the few that also include his father, Ben. The only other person Yeats has found who understands and wants to bird watch is his mother. Plus, she has a car. When Yeats is eighteen, he begins to go birding on his own and Lynn must learn to let go. Over the course of these five years, she learns a lot more about birds than she ever dreamed possible, but she also experiences a unique closeness with her son and the wonder that comes with the beauty of the natural world.
