The purpose of this Major Qualifying Project is to create a device that identifies bird calls in the wild. The aim of this project is to create a handheld device that will be able to interpret bird calls using a high quality microphone and various signal processing techniques and display the top matches on an LCD screen to the user. The main objective of this project is to be able to identify the songs of several bird species in central Massachusetts on a lab development board while additional work would include downloadable software that would add the bird songs of more bird species and the conversion of from a lab development board to a handheld device.
