If you'd like to make recordings of birds using your phone then this microphone is for you. This microphone is also used with the 2040 Bird Monitor.
The microphone that comes with your phone is designed to capture sounds close to your phone over and above those further away. This omnidirectional microphone has proven adept at recording bird song.
- an acoustic membrane to improve water resistance
- a foam windscreen to reduce wind sounds.
- a clip
This can be used in conjunction with the Bird Monitor software (available on Google Play Store) that now has a bird count mode which is a perfect companion for when you are doing 5 minute bird counts. The recording is stored in the cloud with the GPS location and can be easily accessed later and shared so you have an objective record of the bird song and you become less dependant on the capabilities of the individual(s) present during the bird count.
