Setup Options

In this module you can use a number of sound characteristics to help you identify a bird call that you heard out in the field. The [Pre-filter] function allows you to shorten the list of possible species by selecting the habitat and distribution (area) you were in. There is an [Autoplay] function that will play the calls of the birds in the list automatically (you can set the time to play each call). The Sound module can be accessed from the home page, identification module and modules menu.
