Abstract (Excerpt)

In this paper, we present a series of experiments on the automated classification of Cassin's Vireo individuals from song phrases using support vector machines and from sequences of song phrases using hidden Markov models. Experimental results show that accurate classification of bird individuals can be achieved using these two different levels of description of bird songs.
