All of the above are PL OK except for:

Section 9 2:42 missed edit "and pussy watched them"

Section 15 0:29 Deuteronomy I hear something like "Deuter-nomony" It's a tongue twister, but since it is a book of the Bible I think we need a correction. You can try this: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=pronounce+Deuteronomy

The list at the end is read in the wrong order. It goes down the column on the left, all separated by commas, and continues to the column on the right where the list ends with a period.

That may not be critical, so I'll let Jo make the call on this.

Hi Jo and Larry -

Here are my contributions - Section 18 and the genus/scientific names were tongue twisters!

Well, I think you did as well as can be expected with these scientific names, Lynda. :thumbs:

Just one correction that is needed
5:23 the bird is Nut-hatch, and I hear Nut-thatch and the name "carolinensis" is a bit off.

That is funny Larry as I thought the list at the end was in the other order as the last item listed was at the end of the 1st column thus making the list go left to right. Also, for the first couple of entries, it seems that the bird's official name was after their "given" name until I read further down the list. That is why I read the list the way I did.

Larry is correct on the order written, but I'm fine leaving it as read. There is no difference in overall intent.

My apologies, Betty. I saw your post and thought had put your files in the MW, but obviously not. :oops: Thanks for the reminder! All done now.
