about

Little Misery Birds has no producer because it is not a product.
This record as made in the cracks and fissures, some barely large enough to accommodate a small sparrow. Each tiny bird made hardly a mouthful.
I heard the story of the Little Misery Birds in Quebec: When the white people came there was food enough for a million years for everyone, but they slaughtered all the animals so that within a few years they were forced to trap sparrows and snow buntings. Thus begins the history of canada.
