Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Birdwatching has never felt like a hobby, or a pastime I can pick up and put down, but a thread running through the pattern of my life, so tightly woven in that there's no way of pulling it free and leaving the rest of my life intact.

Meet Mya-Rose—otherwise known as 'Birdgirl'. Birder, environmentalist, diversity activist. To date she has seen over 5,000 different types of bird: half the world's species.

Every single bird a treasure. Each sighting a small step in her family journey—a collective moment of joy and stillness amidst her mother's deepening mental health crisis. And each helping her to find her voice.

Since she was young, she has visited every continent to pursue her passion, seeing first-hand the inequality and reckless destruction we are inflicting on our fragile planet. And the simple, mindful act of looking for birds has made her ever-more determined to campaign for all our survival.

This is her story; a journey defined by her love for these extraordinary creatures. Because large or small, brown, patterned or jewelled, there is something about birds that makes us, even for just moments at a time, lift our eyes away from our lives and up to the skies.
