Bird Calls from Audubon

A bit of a bird enthusiast myself, found this interesting.  It is quite simple. You recite the name of a bird, and you get back something like:  'There are 6 calls for this bird', and you choose one and it is played for you.   The audio is very good.  So the architecture is a simple look up, and in general the voice query gets it right.  But there is not much background to support the lookup,  and in a perhaps typical use scenario, you have heard a bird,  or seen an unknown bird, and want to look it up,  its hard to apply. Now if I could record a bird or take a picture of one and use that to search?
