The Archive

Online Catalog

Our catalog pages are divided into the following sections:

The information shown in each entry of the catalog is as follows:

  • Common and Latin names
  • Number of recordings / number that are restricted
  • Total duration of all recordings
  • Geographic source of recordings


Here's an example:

  • emu Dromaius novae-hollandiae 3/0r, 01:42; (captive NH,OH)

We have 3 recordings of the emu, and 0 of them are restricted.
The total time of these 3 recordings is 01:42, or 1 minute 42 seconds.
These recordings were made in New Hampshire and Ohio, from captive individuals.
