xeno-canto is an archive of crowd-sourced recordings of bird songs. It was started in 2005, and currently has 362,232 recordings from 3,793 different uploaders. It is run by a Dutch foundation set up for the purpose, and gets funding from a naturalist society. It seems stable for now, but would be good to keep an eye on in case they run into trouble and need a backup.
