This web site will be interesting reading for all you avian recordists.
It notes which species have not been recorded to date.  It is surprising
how many hummingbird species are in this category.

According to Kroodsma, the only groups of birds that LEARN their songs
(as contrasted with hard-wired song) are the songbirds, parrots, and
hummingbirds.  That makes the lack of hummingbird recordings more
significant.  All you tropical American recordists now have a fun
challenge - document those hummer songs!

Dear All,

In the six months since I launched my website I have added 9 new 
titles, which take the total number of recorded species up to 7100. 
The new titles have recordings from Bolivia, Lesser Antilles, SE 
Brazil (2), Colombia, Puerto Rico, Japan, Thailand and the Canary 

In addition the systematic list now also includes the species I do 
not yet have recordings of (in blue) and indicates which of these 
have not yet been recorded (denoted as unrecorded). These additions 
have meant that both the Non-passerines and Passerines are split into 
three sections each (instead of two) to keep the files down to a 
reasonable size.

Also, an extra section has been added to the top of the `Key to 
Recordings' page giving a break down of CURRENTLY AVAILABLE titles by 
geographical region. This is to help those of you wanting to find 
recordings for a particular region.

Of course, a reminder of the URL:-

All the best,

Shaun Peters
