Bird world : a bird book for children by J. H. Stickney (1860 - 1946) and others.


Bird World is a children's guide to New England Birds. It explores the characteristics, habitat, and songs of native birds. ( Jennifer Dallman)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/birdworldbirdbo00stic
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    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!

Ann - can I get another Section added - I miscounted, and I am short a section. Also, I'm thinking of adding the Appendix as well, there is a lot of good information there, what do you think?

I will add two sections for you, if you decide not to read the Appendix, then we can just get rid of that extra section!

Ann - we have a little issue - I see that it's put Ernest Thompson Seton in there as the author, it's actually J. H. Stickney. Seton was the illustrator. I didn't connect the two until I started recording. I can't find anything on J. H. Stickney, but can we change it to her name?

Yes, that I can easily take care of. You can change the first post if you want, or you can just leave it but make sure you use the correct author. Or I can change it for you if that is easier.

Ann-
Thank you, I went in and changed them, if you could just look it over to make sure I didn't miss anything that would be wonderful.

Helen-
I have the Preface recorded. These are very short chapters, which will be wonderful for mothers like me that are planning on using them for their children, but if you want to wait until I have a few uploaded before you PL, I will leave that up to you.
