Hi All,


I know Andrew Taylor personally, and have been indirectly involved with his and Prof. Gordon Grigg's acoustic monitoring projects.  They currently have recorders at Kakadu recording (and ostensibly recognising) frog calls in order to track the invasion of the cane toad into the Northern Territory.


And the software is also being trialled on bird populations; Gordon has a recorder on his property at Gold Creek in Brisbane, busily recording all sorts of gems like Regent Bowerbird and White-eared monarch, and sending the audio files to Andrew for checking.  As far as I know - it's working.  Andrew is a regular poster to Birding-Aus, so I'm sure he wouldn't mind answering questions about his project.


From my perspective, I am hoping to get Gordon and Andrew's acoustic monitoring expertise involved with the ACT Frogwatch Program - especially for sensitive or remote frog sites where we can't really risk sending volunteers.
