03-11-2012. It looked to be a rather quiet week, with some interesting recordings by Raf Drijvers from Indonesia, but now Tayler Brooks steps in with a series of 100+ recordings.
23-10-2012. XC is getting ready to move to a new version and to new servers. All files are being copied at this very moment. Exciting stuff! There will be some testing of course, and just before the transfer *uploading will be impossible for a short while*. Just so you know.
Posted by Willem-Pier Vellinga on 2012-10-26, 4:32:All sonograms are being redone (and improved we think) for the new version. The new server is happily crunching away, and will keep doing so for a few more days at least....

19-10-2012. A good week, with for example a very cool set by Richard Webster from the western US.
Posted by Willem-Pier Vellinga on 2012-10-25, 18:14:the deluge of recordings by Richard is continuing. Check them out: nice series of many different sound types. Richard is now comfortably above 1000 recordings as well. Keep it up!

04-10-2012. It has been quiet on the front page for a while, but as you might have guessed/hoped that is a sign of changes to come. We're busy thinking and working on the future of xeno-canto. Actually, most of the *work* is being done by Jonathon Jongsma who is an XC recordist and a programmer. We are very happy to say that Jonathon has agreed to become a part of team XC. Believe us: he earned it. So, there are 4 of us now: Bob, WP, Sander & Jonathon.
04-10-2012. No less than 150 recordings yesterday. Many good recordings by Matthias Feuersenger from the Pacific. Excellent stuff!
Posted by Matthias Feuersenger on 2012-10-05, 8:52:Thanks Jonathon. And extra big thanks to Rebecca Stirnemann from NUS University for taking me along to the Maos on three occasions. Amazing birds. Let's hope they'll survive. They are not doing very well at the moment.
Posted by Jonathon Jongsma on 2012-10-04, 16:51:That set of Mao recordings is really great. Nice work, Matthias.

05-09-2012. Marc Thibault adds the first known recordings of Moluccan Woodcock, a species not reported since 1980 (according to the Birdlife species page). Definitely spotlight material.
Posted by Samuel Jones on 2012-09-05, 13:29:Really looking forward to hearing more about this!!!
Posted by Marc Thibault on 2012-09-05, 10:54:Downloaded here are recordings of 2 different Moluccan Woodcocks. These recordings were obtained during a 2 week survey in Obi island in March 2010, along with Pierre Defos du Rau, Olivier Pineau and Wesley Pangimangen. The results of this survey (including observations of the woodcocks and a few new island records) will be detailed in an article that is about to be submitted !
Posted by Bob Planque on 2012-09-05, 10:17:We would love to hear the story on this, Marc! Drop us a line.
