Schoodic Notes

Bird Sounds of Schoodic Peninsula, Acadia National Park

Bird sound recordings

From June 2017 (when the project first began) to August 2019, 232 bird sound recordings from the Schoodic Peninsuala in Acadia National Park, representing 48 species have been uploaded to the  Macaulay Library at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology (https://www.macaulaylibrary.org). In the coming months, another 125+- more will be added to bring us up to date with this year’s field season. In subsequent years we hope to begin to fill gaps — continuing with breeding song birds, and then on to shorebirds, and more. In time, it is our hope to extend the project to the whole of Acadia National Park.

The importance of contributing our bird sound recordings to the Macaulay Library, specifically, as opposed to creating our own private collection, is multi-fold. First, the Macaulay Library holds nearly 550,000 bird sound recordings from around the world. More importantly, their mission “is to facilitate the ability of others to collect and preserve such recordings and to actively promote the use of these recordings for diverse purposes spanning scientific research, education, conservation, and the arts.”  Adding our recordings to the Macaulay Library makes our project bigger than itself alone, and longer lasting than staff or volunteers involved in our project, or this blog site, etc. In addition, uploading our recordings to the Macaulay Library serves as a “cloud” backup for our field recordings, and allows us to easily share them with others (and with spectrograms which are important for analysis).

Look on the list of our recordings below (arranged in alpha order by the species common name) and click on the link to the Macaulay Library Catalogue number (ML#) which will take you to the recording where you can listen, see a spectrogram, and learn more details about each recording.

Please note: The recordings are near-original copies, meaning they are minimally filtered, and trimmed and normalized according to best practices. Not always “pretty” but real.
