Album Notes
This CD came out of a simple idea: that I would do a show for my local Audubon chapter of songs about birds. Being an avid birder as well as traditional music and folklore enthusiast, it was a great project. As I did research, however, a strange thing started to happen: I started to make up other words to the songs I was using. I’m not much of a songwriter, so this was unusual. But for a while there, it seemed like I couldn’t take a walk in the woods or a drive in the car without some silly reworking of an old song going through my head. Eventually I gave in, and the show became as much about celebrating (and laughing at) birders like me, as it was about the objects of our affliction, ... I mean, affection.

All the songs not designated as traditional were written by me. Guitar and banjo are played by me, and most songs were done in one live take.
