What is it about?
Machine learning is increasingly part of our everyday lives. It is also an important tool for science. One way that it is currently being used is to understand sounds. Sounds are important when studying how animals behave. In this paper we investigated how we can best use machine learning to understand sounds that birds produce.

Why is it important?
Because machine learning is relatively new for understanding bird sound, it isn't yet clear what the best practices are for using it. We investigate some of these concerns so that future researchers can use them.
