I had long assumed that the WordPress media uploader system is for image files, but now I learn (thanks Helen) that it also handles audio files … so this short post is just a way of seeing how this works.

I will not be making much use of this facility as there is a 2Mb maximum file size limit on media files for WordPress unless you want to go modifying some code … and I do not. Most audio files of any use are going to be bigger than that.

Anyway – if this works, and it should, here is a very short clip of the song of the famous garden Carolina Wren – this is the song that gets us up at dawn during the summer.

We hope you enjoyed that.
