about

45 minutes of commercial early 20th century recordings of human beings imitating birds, a practice probably pre-dating anything resembling music or language, from France, India, Australia, and the United States.

download includes over 1,700 words of notes, including a Post-Natural Chronology of Bird Imitation, Recording, and Reproduction, recording information, and relevant quotes.
