The idea behind this post is to illustrate how color and some descriptions can be used to interpret an image that a person has never seen. As always, these images have been percieved using the The vOICe.
<a href="http://www.blindliving.com/"A friend posted about nuthatches on twitter so I decided to take a look at them. There are several kinds of nuthatches but for our purposes, we will focus on the white-breasted nuthatch and the red-breasted nuthatch.
See the below link for the red-breasted nuthatch.
see the following link for a picture of the white-breasted nuthatch.
I have never seen a bird before so do not have an idea of its shape. I know what a breast is. I heard the entire image and then decided to find the red breast. The red color filter did the job so I now knew where the breast was. I now slowed down the speed to quarter. There is a wavy line as you approach the right of the image at the left and reach the correct height. I suspect that is the stripe of the nuthatch but I cannot be sure. As for the wings and the bill, I do not know where they are. They are bound to be there but my knowledge of bird anatomy is rather limited to be able to find them.
As for the white-breasted nuthatch, not much to say except that the shape is interesting. The color filter does not help here but I have not tried all the color.
Also, I tried the skin filter and got silence. I take it that the skin filter is optimized for human skin?
Jacob Kruger pointed out that the orange filter gave the most interesting results in the red breasted nuthatche’s case. If the description at http://www.birdsource.org/ibs/IBSspecies/rebnut/index.html is correct, then the orange portion is the under part of the nuthatch.
