Blind Birdwatcher Sees With Sound - YouTube
"Juan Pablo Culasso is a birdwatcher in Uruguay, but he doesn't see birds the way that most birdwatchers do. In fact, he doesn’t see them at all. Born without sight, Culasso listens to the birds and has developed a keen ability to identify their distinct calls and melodies. He has also embarked on a quest to record their sounds to help conserve his country's natural heritage in an audio archive."

Chirpomatic: automatic birdsong ID, Britain & Ireland on the App Store on iTunes
"Chirpomatic is the great new way to identify bird sounds around you! The app uses the most up-to-date, cutting-edge advances in machine learning to create the best automatic birdsong identifier yet. This first version concentrates on birds of parks and gardens, and can identify the sounds of almost 60 birds.

Chirpomatic could not be simpler to use - when you hear a bird, quickly open the app and tap the red button. Record the bird for up to 10 seconds, then the app will analyse the sound and show you the top matches. You can listen again to the sound you have just recorded, and compare it to the results to decide which bird was singing.

All this takes place on the device - you do not need a data connection or wi-fi to get results so you can use it wherever you are - even if you are in the middle of nowhere!

We specialise in bird apps and we know the problems that can arise. For this reason, we have added a special feature to the app that we call ‘bird-safe mode’. Many nature reserves discourage the use of mobile devices because the playing of bird sounds can disturb birds, especially during the breeding season. But with Chirpomatic you can switch bird-safe mode on, and use the app safely. In bird-safe mode you need to hold the device to your ear as though on the phone, in order to hear the sounds.

Your recordings are saved so that you can listen again. You may like to help us improve the app by tapping the Upload button and sending us the sound to use in training our system."

"Our study examines song use in wood-wrens within their habitat. Our results suggest wood-wren song types are sung at frequencies favoring a few highly utilized songs. These songs are also paired non-randomly to form distinct duet types. Localizations were conducted to further understand the function of these duets."
