Fernando's exotic habitat recordings sound wonderful and I'm looking forwar=
to hearing a sample!  I think our project is still very flexible on time
limits.  We could just expand the number of CDs, according to the number an=
quality of entries.  At the moment we planned on one or two CDs with entrie=
of 1-5 minutes (or more?) duration, possibly with a subject of the
individual recordists' choice.  Is that the general idea?  The alternative
is to do a CD just of dawn choruses from around the world.
