We’ve spent today trying to sort out the Lorikeet species Birdnet identified. Here on the Murray near Echuca, the trees are dominated by Musk Lorikeet which we sight. Birdnet identifies those in plenty and the occasional Little Lorikeet and Scaly-breasted Lorrikeet. The sonographs look okay compared with ebird but we aren’t sure. They really require a sighting.
Birdnet has given us several false id’s arising from human speech or noise: Brushturkey, Tawny Frogmouth, Powerful Owl, Tasmanian Nativehen, Pied Stilt, Pacific Black Duck and Bush Thick-knee. So, I think anything surprising needs to be carefully validated.
Do you do anything to screen out human voice or machinery noises?
Taking a look at the species list there appears to be an entry for human:human
I wonder if the tensorflow lite model has been trained with human samples so they are less likely to be spuriously classified as birds.
In any case, the only real filtering that can be done is within the model. Perhaps in the future there will be an updated model.
I tried this today on a 3B+ without luck
I tried x64 Full & Lite, but ended up with “says installation completed successfully”. Strange that this means it failed???
The webpage is blank. Even on the Pi
I can see http://192.168.2.40:8000/ “Icecast2 Status”, but don’t know the admin login creds.
I don’t have a mic here to connect. Maybe that’s the issue?
I had difficulty connecting to the BirdNet-Pi main page. The instructions are misleading. They say to point your browser to http://birdnetpi.local. That only works if your Pi hostname is birdnetpi. In my case, my hostname is pi4b2, so I have to connect to http://pi4b2.local or just http://pi4b2
If you do ps -ef from command line, you should see a few BirdNETPi processes running. The web server that you need to connect to is the process:
/usr/bin/caddy run --environ --config /etc/caddy/Caddyfile
That also shows you where the configuration file is.
Thanks for preparing the tutorial for BirdNET-Pi. This is fantastic for some education work I’m doing in the local community in relation to Noisy Minors.
I had an issue with updates failing.
See my posts on the BirdNET-Pi git. Files on microSD card not being deleted · Discussion #385 · mcguirepr89/BirdNET-Pi · GitHub
I’m still waiting to see if this fix works - but had to use the curl link provided on the BirdNET-Pi git site before updates worked.
Really appreciate the time and effort into promoting BirdNET-Pi.
If you want a guaranteed stable version, that will work exactly as promised in the video use the terminal command outlined in the video.
If you want to be a the forefront of new patches and features then definitely jump to the Bird-Net Pi GitHub to get the most recent release. Just understand that being at the forefront means you may run into some teething issues. Hope that helps and explains.
After loading all Birdnet data to raspberry pi400 then opening log in birdnetpi.local there is a message repeated at every search “directory and file do not exist”. I have reloaded data several times with the same result, any advice on what I might be doing wrong.
Followon to my earlier post, I eventually got everything loaded and working, The problem was at the Pi400 set up, after connecting to Wifi there was an option to search and load system software upgrades which I had been accepting (bad move) I skipped the upgrade and all is well,
I am having trouble starting BirdNet-Pi. I have installed the files for BirdNet-Pi and gone to the website. I made an account.
Now I can’t see how to get the program running. How do I start it please. Any help will be good thanks.
If I already have a webserver installed can I still install this to my pi? is there anything I can do that will help save my existing website? I’d like to try and add the bird recorder to my live streaming audio server too. I use a dummy hed microphone that streams 24/7 to a few audio servers, the dummy hed streams binaural 3D audio and I think it would be a great addition to my raspberry pi’s website. I’ve just got binaural recordings on my website at http://binaural.world. Any help would be welcomed
Very cool being able to jump onto your Raspberry Pi Hosted Website from where I am . Running and Hosting multiple websites on the same web server is definitely possible using a Raspberry Pi. You will need to utilise Virtual Hosts. Linked here is a VirtualHost example with Apache.
All the codes here are open source so you could also combine features from BirdNet-Pi website into your website. Keep in mind I’d recommend using a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B to run multiple web servers in that manner as that in combination with running BirdNet-Pi could be pushing the hardware up to the redline.
Thank you for the info, I’ve just tried setting up virtual hosts, Ive two domains I use so used them… sr3dlive.co.uk and binaural.world … I added them both to the config but once reloaded i end up at my router page, or else in chrome i get webserver refused. So ive put the settings back and I’m still working thank goodness! ha!
I may get another raspberry pi and setup another binaural mic to go with it in the garden too.
