No doubt Xeno-canto is a great reference and I hope it will continue to gro=
[I also hope I'll contribute to include some computer science wizardry
into it to make it even moreuseful, but that's quite another story!]

As I see it, the "problem" is that we were discussing calls that are
only mildly species-specific, hence the fact that many candidate species
were eligible...

So I think there's nothing wrong with Xeno-canto on this case.
The only "wrong" thing is the bird! ;-)
