NEON Bird Blog #1

This semester, I’m helping out with a bit of the analysis for NEON (for a brief description of the NEON project, check out the main page). One of my objectives is to use acoustics to identify the species that are present during different seasons. This includes birds, frogs, and insects. Since this data set is HUGE and we’ve got MONTHS of recordings to get through, I’m requesting some help with the bird identification. I’m starting a series of blogs that will include pictures of spectrograms from our recordings, their associated sound clips, and a place for acousticians and bird enthusiasts to put their bird ID skills to the test! Feel free to browse the sound clips below and cast your vote for the type of birds we’re hearing at our field sites! Any help is greatly appreciated! And look out for more blogs coming next week!

The clips in this blog post were recorded in late December in Petersham, Massachusetts.
