 <pre style="margin: 0em;">Greetings, I'm a graduate student at Northern 
Arizona University, and I'm
 interested in doing research that involves the simple analysis of bird
 <pre style="margin: 0em;">I'm running behavioral trials in a room that's about 
3 m square. Each trial
 involves one bird being in the room for 30 min. I've noticed that during
 trials, some birds are very vocal, and some birds are less vocal. I'd like
 to quantify the amount of time each bird spends making noise (for example,
 "Bird X made 7 min and 20 sec of noise during the 30 min trial"). I don't
 need to do any additional analysis of call types.</pre><br>
 <pre style="margin: 0em;">I'm hoping that I can simply record each trial on a 
cassette tape, then play
 each tape back into a computer that could calculate the number of minutes of
 noise made per trial. Are there cheap and easy-to-use resources available
 that could do something like this? If so, I'd greatly appreciate your
 recommendations. If you're not aware of any, could you recommend someone
 who might be able to help me?
 Thank you so much for your help. Cheers.
