hello all,

I have posted updates on xeno-canto here, right from the start in 2005. Not=
 too many recently, but still. I am not quite sure how many naturerecordist=
s actually use/contribute to XC but it always seems to me to be a good plac=
e to plug the site.

Anyway, just the other day we reached *100.000* recordings, which is a lot =
of recordings according to any standard. Almost 8100 species represented. 9=
00+ recordists from all over the world. Almost 1000 hrs of sounds. Pretty a=
mazing numbers.

However, we reckon that a collection of all different bird sounds worldwide=
 would need at least 10 times as many recordings. So, as far as we are conc=
erned things are just starting now, and there are still *plenty* of opportu=
nities for recordists to make a difference, so you are all invited to join =
