Description: "Why not use a spare Pi to catalog the birds in your garden, using machine learning to identify them from their songs?"

BirdNET is available for mobile devices too, with regional options to download models for different parts of the world. The algorithm and models are public, and various open-source projects have been working to implement them on different systems, often using a version designed for lower power systems, BirdNET-Lite, using the TFLite Tensorflow packages.

TFLite supports many different environments, allowing you to run machine-learning models on surprisingly small devices, including the Raspberry Pi. That's allowed enthusiasts to build an open-source set of tools that turn a Pi into a bird identifying device that's able to sit there 24 hours a day, spotting birds day and night.
