BIRDS AND THEIR CALLS
N entertainment with a universal appeal. Here is bird life and all outdoors brought to you in a refreshingly simple manner. Of high educational value to the bird lovers, it appeals as good entertainment to old and young—men, women and children.
HE search for something new, something different, is the worry of those interested in entertainment.
Here it is
Bird Calls from the Canary to the Giant Eagle.
Not a dull, dreary
but real life as a boy found it in field and wood. Tested before men's clubs, singing societies, women's clubs, it
Audubon Societies, Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts—Attention.
I know the quaintest spot
Where many riples seap
Among the reathy ferns
Where pretty flowers peep
I know the fairest day
In the farest month of June
I know the songs of the air
And the birds all in tune
I know the happiest day
That gooness ever scheemed
I know a happier day
Than one could ever dream.
I know the birds of the air
With song and plumage so grand
And the dainty little ferns
And flowers of the land.
Mr. Dunning's lecture is called
Birds and Their Calls,
and is a revelation in the transposition of bird's calls to scored music. Mr. Dunning entertains as well as instructs and his talks are very popular, including several musical numbers to which he adapts the songs and calls of many familiar winged neighbors.—
N. Y. Times.
Mr. Dunning is a revelation. Famous as a bird imitator and naturalist, he entertains as well as instructs. Much credit is due Associated Artists of New York City for bringing him here. We hope he will come back as it is the kind of an entertainment we should like to hear again.

Dear Mr. Dunning:—
On behalf of the Public Lecture Association I wish to thank you for the very novel and interesting presentation of some of the song birds and their songs at the Luncheon last Saturday.
I heard nothing but favorable comment on all sides. Not all of your auditors knew all of your bird imitations, but enough knew enough of them to be sure that you were giving life-like representations, especially of the canary and the mocking bird. Your rendition of
Listen to the Mocking Bird
with piano accompaniment was very fine indeed.
