Automatic bird species recognition based on birds vocalization
This paper deals with a project of Automatic Bird Species Recognition Based on Bird Vocalization. Eighteen bird species of 6 different families were analyzed. At first, human factor cepstral coefficients representing the given signal were calculated from particular recordings. In the next phase, using the voice activity detection system, segments of bird vocalizations were detected from which a likelihood rate, with which the given code value corresponds to the given model, was calculated using individual hidden Markov models. For each bird species, just one respective hidden Markov model was trained. The interspecific success of 81.2% has been reached. For classification into families, the success has reached 90.45%.
