The BirdVox-full-night dataset contains 6 audio recordings, each about ten hours in duration. These recordings come from ROBIN autonomous recording units, placed near Ithaca, NY, USA during the fall 2015. They were captured on the night of September 23rd, 2015, by six different sensors, originally numbered 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, and 10.

Andrew Farnsworth used the Raven software to pinpoint every avian flight call in time and frequency. He found 35402 flight calls in total. He estimates that about 25 different species of passerines (thrushes, warblers, and sparrows) are present in this recording. Species are not labeled in BirdVox-full-night, but it is possible to tell apart thrushes from warblers and sparrrows by looking at the center frequencies of their calls. The annotation process took 102 hours.
