THE BIRDER is about a forty year-old high-school teacher and devoted birder who has reached an extreme low point in his life. His students think of him as passé, his ex-wife Rebecca has finally kicked him out of their home and worst of all, his daughter, Samantha, has adopted modern birding methods.
Though Ron Spencer may have been beaten down by life, he’s simply not prepared to go down without a fight. The birds mean the world to him and they represent everything he stands for. Wit, charm and inventiveness lie at the heart of this universal tale of defiance.
