Since 2016, volunteers across the United States have participated in the Climate Watch survey to collect data about target species to help Audubon scientists better understand how birds are responding to climate change. This summer was my first opportunity to work with the Bexar Audubon Society to get involved and collect this crucial data about the Lesser Goldfinch.
Bird identification through bioacoustic monitoring is an exciting field with numerous technological advancements. In this comparison showdown, we’ll be taking a closer look at three popular bioacoustic bird identification stations: BirdNET-Pi, Haikubox, and Birdweather’s PUC.
In this tutorial, I will explain how to create an iOS Scriptable widget that displays the bird visitors in your backyard. By combining data from a BirdNET-Pi station and BirdWeather.com, we can develop a fun widget that showcases the diversity of feathered friends that visit our gardens.
I’ve been a big fan of the Bird Buddy smart bird feeder since I received it in late-November 2022. It’s been a solid smart bird feeder, but it’s not without its faults.
A clone competitor company, AUXCO, provided me with their product. Let’s honestly see how they compare.
Birdwatching is a wonderful hobby that allows us to connect with nature, observe beautiful creatures, and learn about the diversity of the world around us. For young, curious birdwatchers, it can be an especially rewarding experience. And having the right tools can make all the difference in their ability to explore the world of birds.
I’ve been going deep down the BirdNET-Pi rabbit hole over the last month. A BirdNET-Pi setup uses a Raspberry Pi computer and microphone to listen, ID, and log birds it hears 24/7. I came up with an idea to automatically show this count on some kind of digital counter. With this project idea in mind, I did research to find suitable parts to build and program it.
