Sound Files

Many members are recording bird sounds and these are welcome in the Opus.

It's as easy as uploading pictures and the instructions are in the Opus Help here.

Remember to copy the Filename

The code required to insert it onto the relevant page:

<flashmp3> FILENAME.mp3</flashmp3><br />
''[[Media:FILENAME.mp3|Listen in an external program]]''

To keep things consistent throughout, the recording should be a sub-section of Behaviour and titled Vocalisation i.e.

==Behaviour==
====Vocalisation====

(We decided on 'Vocalisation' so that it could include not only songs, but contact and flight calls, and the drumming of Snipe and Woodpeckers etc.)

Remember to give credit to the person making the recording and, if necessary, note which sub-species (in case of a future split). Also, whether it is a song, or flight call etc.

Finally, at the bottom of the page add the category for Bird Songs

[[Category:Bird Songs]]

Thanks Delia

I must admit I haven't done any recording recently. I need to upgrade my recording gear at some point for stereo recordings + since getting involved in bird surveys I've become obsessed with counting everything around my house. The poor old crossbills are being neglected.
It would've been nice to meet you at the next bash but my wife and I are off to Crete for a week for some rest and relaxation, so maybe I'll see you at first 2009 bash.
