People who do museums and visitor centers use little MP3 "audio repeaters" =
that cost less than $100. The ones I've used take a SD memory card, so they=
're easy to load with a custom program. They're DC-powered and drive speake=

 into an efficient horn speaker would be all that's necessary at bird frequ=
encies within a couple of hundred feet. You'd probably need a beefier amp-s=
peaker combination for 200-300m. Experiment.
