The Big Year - The Movie?

"Steve in negotiations to go bird-watching in 'The Big Year' alongside Jack Black and Owen Wilson.

The comedy (is) based on a 1998 book "The Big Year: A Tale of Man, Nature and Fowl Obsession," by Mark Obmascik...It is about three men who try to outdo each other in a bird-watching competition to spot the rarest birds in North America. The rivalry is an allegory for the challenges each faces in his own life."

  1. I just finished reading "the Big Year" after it was recommended by a non-birding friend. I challenge anyone to read the first 5 pages and walk away from this wildly entertaining book.
