Audio Recording Gear
To make wildlife recordings, you’ll need a microphone and a digital recorder. One option is a self-contained system, like those found in smartphones and voice recorders. These are very lightweight and convenient to carry around, but have a hard time isolating a signal and producing high quality recordings. For higher quality recordings, we recommend that you invest in separate microphones and digital recorders, as well as any necessary accessories. Follow the links to see more information about the different parts of a system, or check out our page on recording tips for smartphones.
