The other day in discussing the Greenfinch/ Redpoll query of Graham Meadows=
 I queried the i.d. of a Xeno-canto Redpoll recording that Serge had posted=
. I was too hasty in doing so: I later compared that sonogram with some of =
my own material and indeed the i.d. was correct. Been feeling a bit guilty =
ever since, so wanted to set the record straight and apologise in case anyo=
ne had been hurt by my comment. I find Xeno-canto a great reference source =
and 100k recordings is an amazing achievement.

 900+ recordists from all over the world. Almost 1000 hrs of sounds. Pretty=
 amazing numbers.
