The Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Bird Song Hero

How can you train your brain to recognize and remember bird songs? The All About Bird Biology team at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology has come up with a way to visualize bird vocalizations: Bird Song Hero. Want to test yourself further? Check out the full version of their game at biology.allaboutbirds.org. Related excellence: All About Feathers.

In the archives, some of our favorite videos: the Birds of Paradise project and more from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, the Three-Wattled Bell Bird, and mechanical singing bird boxes.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.
