Hello! Here's Section 6 - Grebes and Divers, Penguins and Tube-Nosed Birds. Oh, Professor Moseley...please stop beating up the penguins.

Length: 14:20

Always happy to edit if need be :)

Had a lot of fun with this one - would love to pick up another section if possible.

Think I could also grab #36 - Eels and Cat-Fishes?
Very lively reading! Their treatment of the birds does contrast with today's scientists, not only in NOT kicking birds off their nests and killing them, but also in NOT collecting their eggs by the wheelbarrow-load!

A couple of notes on the chapter:

:27 the chapter name is repeated
2:54 choppy through here
13:57 habitat should be habit

I'm not sure I heard what you heard for the 2:54 note...but I'm still pretty new to this, and quite likely missed something. Tried to smooth it out a little, but if I didn't manage to fix what you were looking for, just point me in the right direction & I'll take care of it right away.

here is section 9:

https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/livinganimals2_09_various_128kb.mp3 (19:12)

Tom
PL notes for section 9:

7:26 completely ossified should be incompletely ossified
11:46 inevitably should be invariably
12:35 though should be through
15:13 cosco roba
15:26 probably
17:41 spawns should be swans
18:49 cosco roba

Also, just for future recordings, perhaps just pause a bit between sentences and especially between paragraphs.

Ready for PL:

23 - 8:20 https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/livinganimals2_23_various_128kb.mp3
Great reading!

I have a couple of notes:
5:32 to a rival
5:57 African
Please add 1 second at the end - we're supposed to have 5 and you only have 4.

Nila, as I was listening to your sections, I realized that they probably have not yet been edited. There were too many repeats, jumps, etc to list. I'll return these to you until you've had a chance to look them over... thanks
