Bird Detection Demo

This demonstration allows you to try one of our bird detection models on your own recordings. Either upload an audio file from your computer or record some sound directly from your microphone. In either case, up to 10 seconds or 2 MiB of audio will be analyzed on our server, and the results will be shown below.


Select a file from your computer and click the Upload button to send it. On a mobile device, you can also record a sound or video directly in the file selection dialog.


Sorry, it seems your browser does not support the MediaRecorder API. Possibly try Firefox or Chrome!
