Data comprises about 1500 wav files recorded in several protected forests in Puerto Rico during the night. Between 2003 and 2004.

The data was recorded using an automated digital recording system that consisted of a Nomad Jukebox 3 digital player and recorder (Model DAP-HD0003, Creative Labs, Inc, California), a portable preamplifier (Model SP-PREAMP, The Sound Professionals, Inc., New Jersey) and an electret condenser microphone (Model ECM-MS908C, Sony Electronics Inc, California). The microphone was placed at approximately one meter from the ground. The system was controlled with a microcontroller (model MSP430-P- 1121M, Olimex Ltd., Plovdiv, Bulgaria), which triggered commands to the recorder to record 1 minute every 30 minutes. Each sample was stored as a .wav file using a sampling rate of 48 kHz.

The dataset is divided by site, each site is divided into multiple files to limit file size of the final zip files. is the first of Site 1, is the second of Site 1, etc. The file sites.csv contains the data for the sites where the data was collected. The file data.csv contains the metadata for all the files in that site. Each zip file is between 110 and 230 MB.
