Footnotes (the best part!)

  1. Nightingale has best birdsong because of its complex brain. Amazing what 4 billion years of engineering work can come up with.
  2. Song of the nightingale (link to audio)
  3. George Oakley, Sonata for Cello and Piano, Inga Kashakashvili, piano, and Jay Campbell, cello.
  4. Dylan Carlson, piano. Salt Lake City 2010
  5. Why the “xx” in “jxxcarlson”? Identifiers must be unique. Nothing to do with mathematics or with an excellent brand of Mexican beer, although both are in some sense applicable.
  6. The bird: a red-throated flycatcher (Ficedula albicilla)
