Learn state-of-the-art techniques for recording and analyzing the sounds of wildlife with experts from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. These workshops are designed to take students, researchers, birders, and anyone interested in natural sound recording from novice to capable field recordist.
The Sound Recording Workshop (Mid-June 2019) will be based on the Cornell University campus and at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in Ithaca, New York. Each day begins in the field listening to the dawn chorus, learning how to capture the incredible diversity of bird and wildlife sounds. From the Finger Lakes National Forest to Shindagin Hollow State Forest, the Ithaca area offers many beautiful locations that host a range of species and habitat diversity to hone your skills. This workshop also offers an extraordinary opportunity to see the inner workings of the Macaulay Library, eBird, and other programs at the Lab of Ornithology. We welcome beginner and seasoned sound recordists alike.
The Bioacoustics Research Program also offers a five-day introductory-level Sound Analysis Workshop at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology twice per year that gives participants in-depth training on computer-based sound analysis.
