Vocal individuality is hypothesized to exist in acorn woodpecker. If vocal individuality does exist, certain methods could be developed for individual recognition by acoustic sensor network. This work is to test the hypothesis and to look for efficient methods for vocal individual recognition. Result showed that HMMs can recognize individual birds with high accuracy.
