Choose 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 these units have a hard time isolating a signal and producing high-quality recordings. For higher quality recordings, we recommend separate microphones and digital recorders.
