Many species of birds in the Americas vocalize during nocturnal migration flights. Acoustic detection and classification of the calls shows potential for study of the natural history of these migrant birds. In particular, information about the species composition and number of birds involved in migration movements may be obtainable through acoustic techniques. Other methods such as radar monitoring may have capability only to assess the number, but not composition. Here the feasibility of… CONTINUE READING
