From Golden Gate Audubon

Zoom Presentation Bird Sound Recordings for Conservation and Research
with Greg Budney, former audio curator for Cornell Lab of Ornithology
Learn how audio recordings of bird calls are used for conservation and research — from portable recording systems in tropical bird conservation, to automated playback systems for reintroduction of birds into the wild.This talk will also address the ethics of playback, and briefly discuss leaders in this field. The presentation will feature many recordings that contain both high frequencies and very low-pitched sounds. The use of high-fidelity stereo headphones or earbuds is highly recommended. Laptop computer internal speakers are not capable of reproducing many low-frequency signals.When: This Thursday, April 15th, at 7 p.m. PST    Where: Online via Zoom
