I've just seen a few articles mentioning that a huge new database of
birds songs from around the world has gone online. The site is at:

Below are links to a few articles:

The page below summarizes the recordings they've got from various countries:

224 are listed from Australia for 91 species. Unfortunately, I haven't
figured out of there is a way to search by location/country.

The current collection is pretty heavily skewed towards Asia as that's
Pam Rasmussen's area of expertise, but some other countries have
pretty good coverage outside of Asia. Pam Rasmussen seems to be in
charge of the project - she's got a really fascinating history and
career. The New Yorker had a good piece on her a few years back.
