Have you ever wanted to know what birds you hear at home? You can use BirdNET-Pi on your Raspberry Pi with a small microphone to record and ID birds 24/7. I’ve been curious about this project for a while and decided to take the plunge.
There are many gift ideas for bird lovers of different kinds. Whether you’re looking for something small and affordable, like a bird-themed mug or keychain, or something more extravagant, like a bird feeder or birdhouse, there’s something for everyone. So why not surprise the bird lover in your life with a thoughtful and unique gift that shows how much you care about their passion for birds?

This blog post talks mainly about your blogging platform options and what to think about when starting a new bird blog.
