The Kid Should See This

Blind Birdwatcher Sees With Sound

Juan Pablo Culasso is a birdwatcher in Uruguay, but he doesn’t see birds the way that most birdwatchers do. In fact, he doesn’t see them at all. Born without sight, Culasso listens to the birds and has developed a keen ability to identify their distinct calls and melodies. He has also embarked on a quest to record their sounds to help conserve his country’s natural heritage in an audio archive.

Great Big Story shares Culasso’s mission in the lovely video above: Blind Birdwatcher Sees With Sound.

Next: The Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Bird Song Hero, A.I. Experiments: Bird Sounds, The Blind Astronomer of Nova Scotia, How the blind cook, and A Música Portuguesa a gostar dela própria.
