hello everyone,

i've recently been working on a piece about xeno-canto, which is a
community of people who record the many different sounds produced by birds
around the world. this international community, which just celebrated its
tenth anniversary, is entirely volunteer-run, and the bird sounds are
entirely crowdsourced and are licensed under a creative commons license, so
they're free for anyone around the world to download and use. basically, it
is a labour of love so we all can hear the sounds made by the birds we
love.

you may enjoy reading the story i've put together about xeno-canto:

please do share with everyone you know who is interested in learning more
about crowdsourcing, wildlife recording or voice recognition software. (and
birds, of course!)

tschüss,
