NPR wants to help you decode animal sounds

NPR wants to help you decode the sounds of animals in your backyard.
Wondering what kind of bird delivers your early morning wakeup call? Or which frogs are croaking and lurking in your pond? Use your smartphone or a tape recorder to capture the sounds (at least 15 seconds) of the mysterious creatures in your backyard and send the audio file to nprcrowdsource@npr.org with the subject line "Decoding Nature." We’ve enlisted the help of researchers at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology to help decode the sounds in your recordings and identify the creatures. Make sure to include your full name and where you live in your email. And if you’d like, share your best guess as to the identity of your mysterious, noisy neighbor.
