THE CROSSBILL PROJECT
A Research Collaborative
Purpose is to provide a stable, long-term home for Red Crossbill research over a broad front: field observations, recordings, assortative mating and call type delineation by sound and range. Provide information to the scientific community on the validity of call types and potential full-species separations for flight call types, geographically isolated populations (old world versus new world) etc. One purpose would be to serve as arbiters of flight call determination via audiospectrographic analysis and machine learning/AI for this worldwide complex.
We want FiRN to be about you, and about the community and network of people that might want to be involved in a global research network interested in observing and studying finches. We hope to fund student projects in time. “The Crossbill Project” will be the flagship project of FiRN. We officially launched FiRN around Tyler Hoar’s Winter Finch Forecast September 20, 2020, and we hope to have as many of you, finch enthusiasts, hop on board and join in on the fun. It’s all about engaging with nature and the network!
