For those of us working on the wiki pages, remember that there is a infobox field for the bird's voice. Just paste in a url and it'll convert it to a link. See [wiki]Template:Bird[/wiki] for more details. I'd recommend using a call from the Macaulay Library.
i just looked, that link is empty
What? No it isn't.

Yeah, I know about that. Should we paste a call even for birds we aren't responsible for knowing?
I don't know. I'm not great with templates, so I'm not sure how to make the "[link]" thing (or whatever it is) invisible when you don't put a link in. [hint hint, wikimods ;)].
I will get it to disappear this weekend
Got it updated for you guys.
Similar to the original just past a link as voice and it will be linked. But if you do not need a call please leave it blank and a filler text will be displayed

Quick update on what I'm planning for the application I mentioned several pages back:
As I can only develop on a mac, I have no way to do any creation until I get access to a mac, because of not being scheduled in my computer class I only have sporratic usage of macs.
So, it will probably mean I cant do much of anything until our iphone development club starts in october.
A new era has begun

Question to all you birdies: my fossils partner is doing orni (huge conflict however in NY) and was wondering why the lark bunting was put under the emberzids when really it should really be put under carinals, saltators, and allies? it's driving her nuts....

It should be in the emberzids — the lark bunting is the only species in the genus Calamospiza, which is in the family Emberizidae. Essentially, the lark bunting is a sparrow, while birds such as the indigo and painted buntings are cardinals, in the family Cardinalidae and the genus Passerina.

True buntings are in the genus Emberiza, however, and none of those are on the bird list.
