Description

BirdNET-Pi is an acoustic bird identification station running on Raspberry Pi. It listens 24/7, identifies and logs the birds it hears using Cornell Lab of Ornithology's BirdNET neural analysis model.

The detections are logged in the system and are submitted to BirdWeather.com. My station is configured to send Discord notifications when a new species is detected for the day.


History

My BirdNET-Pi station was launched in December 2022. As of March 2023, it is currently at 70,000 detections and counting.
