Birds and Nature, Vol. XII, No 5, December 1902 .
"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.

Hey Jo!

While you await for a DPL, I went ahead and PL'd these :D

Foon, sections 11,13,15 are all PL OK ..nice !

tovarisch, a couple PL notes for you:

For section 1 - At 0:37, the line is: "And early sounds his raucous note;" .... for the word "raucous" I heard "raw-shush" and it should be "raw-kus". I mention it as I know you like to have pronunciation pointed out. :)

For section 24 - At 1:42, the text is: "Now hide and seek does the brooklet play," and I heard "How hide and seek does the brooklet play," which changes the meaning.

Other than that, they were wonderful!
