This data set contains information from recording devices that were set to record regularly during summer breeding seasons. A single observer listened to 2692 recordings, noting which species were heard during each 10-min recording. We used this information to examine how avian detectability varied by day of season, time of day, and ambient temperature. All study locations were in northwestern Alaska, on the Seward Peninsula, and recordings were taken between May 25 and July 26 in 2013 and 2014.
