Forest Enets

Unidentified bird

In this very short audio recording, we hear an Enets man describe how he and his friend found a bird whose species they could not identify and killed it, to the horror of the narrator’s superstitious wife. 

Recording: The story was recorded in Potapovo in 2008 by Andrey Shluinsky. It was transcribed by Andrey Shluinsky with the help of Vitaliy Bolin, glossed by Andrey Shluinsky.
