I am not a bird enthusiast, but this record has such comedic value.

Apparently, Shell oil company released a series of nature records in the 1960s. This is just one of them.

Some of the text on the sleeve is unintentionally hilarious. For example:

and this:

Track 9 – The Blue Tit enjoys a larded coconut.
