*North on the Wing: Travels with the Songbird Migration of Spring*

*Bruce M. Beehler* Smithsonian Books (2018)

"Many thrill to the spring arrival of avian migrants. Ornithologist Bruce
Beehler decided not to wait. Inspired by Edwin Way Teale’s 1951 US
natural-history road trip, *North with the Spring*, Beehler set off in 2015
to follow, by car, canoe and bicycle, the migration of neotropical
songbirds from Texas to Canada. Beehler’s 100‑day account is both deeply
informed by conservation science and history, and lit by euphoric moments
such as seeing roseate spoonbills duelling with “absurd spatulate bills”,
or a cerulean tide of blue jays in flight over Wisconsin wolf country."
