Bird sounds research for private information

Honestly... I have to tell you.. Anytime a person, like me, takes the time to search out a website like yours to gain some knowledge about the sounds certain birds make and am provided with a website that consists of nothing but ads and an impossible to find "play" button... it just confirms my belief that Almanac.Com. is a desperate website, wasting my time and the time of many other honest hard working people that are only searching out information. You're only interest is marketing... ads...revenue..etc. you're a last ditch effort to remain employed at some level... Sorry for your miserable role in life.
