A Bird Song Interactive Quiz from the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology

The Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology's Bird Academy has a bird song learning game for one and all, from young to the geezer crowd.

The video is 7m 09s--5 featured songs and the aim is to match the song with the correct sound visualization. In addition there is a link to the Bird Song Hero ultimate round which is more challenging.

It is fun and sometimes challenging to match the song to the squiggles of a sonogram/sound spectograph about which Donald Kroodsma writes that "in essence, (is)  a musical score made especially for birdsong." The birds are the composers; the technology does the recording.
