The call of a Black-billed Magpie (Corvidae) recorded in Colorado Springs.

This is a mostly new area for me.  Previously I led a bat monitoring program in Illinois which included extensive acoustic monitoring. I’ve gotten quite interested in developing broader research in ecoacoustics – exploring environmental soundscapes across built and natural environments, at scales ranging from populations to ecosystems, as well as bioacoustics – the study of animal sounds.  Preliminary explorations have proven to be promising!  If you think this area might be interesting, feel free to talk to me about possibilities.
