Birds and Nature, Vol. XII, No 3, October 1902 .

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

http://librivox.org/short-nonfiction-collection-vol-009/https://librivox.org/birds-and-nature-vol-xii-no-3-october-1902-by-various/

"Birds and Nature" was a monthly publication of the Nature Study Publishing Company of Chicago. It includes short poems, anecdotes and factual descriptions of birds, animals and other natural subjects 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." - 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/files/47883/47883-h/47883-h.htm
    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!

I believe the next one is December 1902, "Number 5" (after "Number 4", which was September). The text is http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/47885 . If you go for it, I claim the first and last poems, please.

June was vol xii no 1. September was no 2 - there is no July and August. There is some confusion with the titling of the issues on PG, but if you look carefully at the cover of the issue at the link provided, you will see that it is October 1902, vol xii, no 3.However, it appears that I didn't update the MW link correctly last night. Will fix that now.

Hi Jo,

let me return the favour for once, and I'll claim a few sections in your interesting magazine as well. I have often looked into it but your project is always quite quickly "sold out" :lol:

Well, here's my chance: Could I do the first 3 sections please ?

1 Autumn Woods
2 The Philippine Sun-Birds
3 Fly, white butterflies, out to sea

thanks

Sonia

OK, since my claim is obviously against the wrong source, please disregard it. Sorry to have bothered you.

No bother at all, tovarisch. Sorry for the confusion with the issues. It had me confused initially as well!
