Thanks, Jo.

When I lived in southern California years ago, I had Hooded Orioles nesting in the dead fronds of a fan palm right outside my front door. :D

Hey Jo!

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

...
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!
Thank you, Nemo! Must've been distracted... :oops: Jo, the corrected tracks have been uploaded, no change in running time.

And once again, they had to be killed in the end... :roll:

Hey Jo!,

I see we have not picked up a DPL yet, so why don't you put me in for the position :D

Hi Ava, great reading of section 22, as usual :D

I do have a couple PL notes for you:

At 2:56, the text reads: "the jaws snap down on it.", and I heard you read: "the jaws snap open on it." which is a bit of a difference.

At 7:40 the text reads: "sits in the bow of the boat", here you pronounce "bow" rhyming with "no" - as in a bow and arrow, but it should be "bow" rhyming with "now". The same thing again at 8:04: "The man in the bow holds"
