Let the birdsongs, chips, chirrups, calls, and warbles of Southeast Arizona’s signature species speak to you in their own language of this region’s magnificence.  

The Sound of Science: About the project

Using more sophisticated bird and bat survey techniques led to Tucson Audubon acquiring several SM4 Sound Recorder units from Wildlife Acoustics. These devices are set up to record ambient sound at specific time intervals and then the audio files are scanned for specific species using very advanced software. These devices give us amazing bird survey data for certain species and also capture the lovely sounds of Southeast Arizona in stunningly high quality.
