Nocmigging, the study of nocturnal bird migration, is increasingly popular but requires humans to analyse recordings on software such as Audacity, which is very time-consuming. However, artificial intelligence could do the work for us! To start with, bird detection could save a lot of time by extracting sections of recordings with bird calls in them, only needing humans to identify birds from the calls. After that, the code could be further developed to extend to bird call identification as well, which would allow autonomous recording stations to be created.
