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.

Very cool app. Works well, and I love the selection-from-sonogram concept. When it can't figure out what bird it is, it's usually because the sound is coming from a squirrel. Overall app design could probably be a bit more robust and also more stylish, but I'm not complaining.

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.

I have used this app for 3 years and this spring, after latest update, it's absolutely horrible at identifying anything. All recordings come up as "Sorry, we were unable to confidently identify any bird species". It's quite frustrating since it was perfect until this last update. Please fix it!!
