AviaNZ birdsong analysis software

AviaNZ version 1.4 is released with some improvemets and bug fixes! You can download the software along with the user manual following the links below. 

The program is equipped with the essentials for spectrogram reading, analysis, and manual annotation. AviaNZ offers advanced features such as denoising, automated analysis of your field recordings, and the options to review the results in a user friendly manner. In this version, we also include the facility to train a filter to detect any target apecies calls in field recordings and this module is under development and testing.   

We thank to those of you who shared your experence while using the program with us enabling to improve it. We welcome your feedback and it is very important to us as we continue developing AviaNZ.

Sponsor a kiwi

To track and study our kiwi, they each need individual radio-transmitters and we need radio-telemetry equipment, batteries, and cameras to be able to follow them. In total, we spend $470 per kiwi each year and we would like to ask you to sponsor this cost for one or more of our birds.
