Cornell Lab of Ornithology — Macaulay Library

    "The Macaulay Library at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology is the  world’s largest natural sound and video archive of animal behavior. Its mission is to collect and preserve recordings of each species behavior and natural history and to make them available for research, education, conservation, zoos and aquaria, wildlife managers, publishers, the arts, and both public and commercial media. Since 1930, recordists of all backgrounds have contributed their recordings, which now number to several hundred thousand in total. A large percentage of the recordings can be searched and played online."

The library uses a free browser plugin called RavenViewer, which ‘enables you to see and visually analyze the sound as you play it.’   There is a search box, or one can browse taxonomically or by common names.
