Hi all,
A while ago I read with interest a short article (I think it was in
Wingspan) about using audio recording devices set up along a wetland
(I think it was done by a Victorian CMA). If I recall correctly it
would record bird calls during a pre-set period of time, which could
later be analysed against a digital set of local reference calls, in
an attempt to ID species.
I can't seem to find this article as most of my books and journals are
in storage while we are temporarily renting a house; neither could I
find anything on the internet.
If anyone recalls this article I'd be grateful if they could point me
to the author and/or organisation involved. Has anyone had experience
with this method? I'm not interested in a lengthy discussion about the
pro's and cons of this from those that know nothing about it - I just
would like to read up on it and/or hear from people with first-hand
Thanks in advance,

Peter Waanders
