This page can be used to grab and create MP3 recording collections from xeno-canto on per country basis.It's most useful when you're going to travel to a country, and want a collection of recordings from that country (and neighboring countries as well.
The collection is based on the aggregated checklist (IOC) from the choosen countries, then the recordings are picked from xeno-canto irrespective of which counry the recording is made in
The code for this is open source and resides on github at https://github.com/klacke/xeno-canto-country-collector
For example a complete WP list, could consist of a collection produced from a number of suitable European countries, or a good South-East Asia list could consist of a combined list from e.g Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand
When multiple countries are chosen, all data from all of them are grabbed, and then the selection algorithm is as follows:
On a per species basis (all choosen countries), max 4 recordings are picked
I favour high ratings, and long recording time
Two 'call' and two 'song' recordings are picked (if available). If not, the next (up to four) next best recordings are picked.
