I hope that this is the right place to ask? Anyway, does anybody know what recorders produce the audio tapes that they have on eBird?

Like this?

Not sure what your question means.  Are you referring to the histogram, the visual representation, rather than the audio?

This is interesting.  I spent half the morning learning a bit.

It isn't really the recorder that creates the spectograph, or sonogram, or whatever it is, but software.  For me, I have been making movies with my camera, then stripping the audio, and uploading the sound file to eBird.  I don't know what they do to display the information that you're looking at.  I've started playing with recording directly onto my iPad.  I'm waiting on a cable that I can use to connect my external microphone to see if that is better.

However, this morning I decided to see if I can create my own.  All I had to do was change a setting on the software I use to edit the sound file before uploading (Audacity).  I don't know (yet) what I'd have to do to export the visual part.

So, I guess it depends on what it is that you want to do with the picture.

I though it if you uploaded the audio file, Macauley would generate the image automatically.   I've never done it,  that was just my assumption.

Yes, that's the way it works.  I just wasn't sure whether the OP had some other purpose for the graphic representation.
