Birds, Vol. 1, No 3, March 1897 .

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page here:

https://librivox.org/birds-march-1897-by-various/

Birds, Illustrated by Color Photography was a monthly publication of the Nature Study Publishing Company of Chicago. It includes short poems, anecdotes and factual descriptions of birds with accompanying color plates. The magazine was published from 1897-1907 under the various titles, "Birds," "Birds and all Nature," "Nature and Art" and "Birds and Nature." Later issues were expanded to include animals, plants, etc. Summary by J. M. Smallheer
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? For this project, we ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1 month of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after one month, your sections may be automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know, and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen. Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the one month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/30103
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.
      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard
      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Cheers,
Ava.

Phew! Lots of claims here - a few overlapping. So here we go in order of posts -

Alan - 2 & 22 The Bluebird and The Owl poems
Ava - 8 - The Japan Pheasant (Yes, I figured you would pick this. I hope you noticed that I waited to post this project until it was morning in Japan :wink: )
Fritz - 18-21 The Meadowlark 1 & 2 and The Owl 1 & 2 (The last one - 22 was claimed above by Alan)
Larry - DPL (The Owl - Section 22 was claimed above by Alan)
Betty - 10-11 The Boblinks

Off to a running start here as usual. Thanks for your claims!

Hi Jo
If Larry really wants to read 22 I could let him have that one and take 12 and 13 instead 😸

That would be very kind.
I'm not picky, though. Just happy to serve.
Actually I misread the number, or I wouldn't have claimed it. It is such a nice poem, though.

Sure. I'd prefer to leave 22 as originally assigned. If you throw it back in the pool, I would offer it to Fritz first since he was the second to claim it after you. I'm sure Larry would understand.

Thanks Jo. In that case I will keep my claim to 22.
