How can computers learn to recognize birds from sounds? The BirdNET research project uses artificial intelligence and neural networks to train computers to identify nearly 3,000 of the most common species of North America and Europe. You can record a file using the internal microphone of your iOS device and see if BirdNET correctly identifies the probable bird species present in your recording. Get to know the birds around you and help us to collect observations by submitting your recordings.

BirdNET is a joint project of the K. Lisa Yang Center for Conservation Bioacoustics at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and Chemnitz University of Technology.

It was working fine until recently. Now, as it’s trying to analyse the sound, it suddenly shuts down completely.

Great when it opens

I downloaded this and loved it BUT it often refuses to open on my iPhone once downloaded. I use it for one or two recordings and then go to use it a day or two or more later and the app won’t open. I need to delete and reload from App Store. When it works it’s great!

Found him !

Sydney, Australia, determined the bird waking me up at 5:20am.

Excellent app, very fast and I’m getting accurate results. I’m now getting to know the birds in my area.
