About this app

How can computers learn to recognize birds from sounds? The BirdNET research project uses artificial intelligence and neural networks to train computers to identify more than 3,000 of the most common species worldwide. You can record a file using the microphone of your Android 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.

Great idea for an app except for one small problem - the app doesn't work over 90% of the time. Almost every time you try to identify a call, the app says "Sorry we are having technical problems. Please try again in a get minutes". You try again a fre minutes later and it's the same message. If the app worked consistently I'd give it five stars but I can't give an app that is basically useless a good rating.

I love this app! Five stars without a doubt! I do have one criticism: Whenever you record audio in the app, and you go to select the audio you want it to analyze, there is no way to scroll backwards or forwards, so if the audio you want to analyze is out of the frame, you cannot go back to audio from 10 seconds ago.

The core functionality is amazing, just rough around the edges in overall design: hard to go from Analyze back to capturing more new sounds and often seems to break inside when you do ie saying "no idea" on easy songs. But it is scary accurate sometimes, I like that it gives a confidence rating. I think once I tested whether it has nighttime birds' sings and it seemed not to.
