Birds have become an increasing concern for ecological preservation and safety. This paper proposes architecture of semantic sensing information for bird acoustic data representation in bird ecological environment. This architecture provides various real-time sensing data such as bird calls using acoustic sensors in sensor networks. Information of this architecture supports to recognize bird calls, to identify birds, to classify species, and to track a bird behavior in bird ecological environment.
