Automatic bird recognition with the Raspberry Pi

Do you like birds?

I adore ! I have plenty of them in my garden and they delight me with their songs. Just to see them fly, I love it. I have tits of all kinds, wood pigeons, magpies, but also great spotted woodpeckers, green woodpeckers, finches, orioles or even small birds of prey or herons.

Only here, even if I have books, it is sometimes difficult to know what types of birds are present. Some are difficult to observe and others are more morning than me.

So what to do?

Well with the project BirdNet-Piit is possible with a simple Raspberry Pi and a microphone, to record 24 hours a day the sound environment of your garden to automatically extract the songs, chirps and other clucks of our beloved wild birds.

The tool is thus able to create spectrograms of each bird sound captured and to identify them. Then you will have a whole dashboard with stats, the visualization of species, their spectrogram and of course the possibility of listening to certain songs again.

What’s even cooler with Brident-Pi is that you can even share this data with the world via a small embedded web server (a Caddy). Here is a short list to show you:

I find this project super cool. I don’t know if I’ll have the time to set this up, but if that’s your case, I would like a little feedback on occasion. Perhaps the LPO will use it to help individuals easily set it up at home in order to recover data from all over France.

You will find all the information about this project here.
