Make your own bird song recordings and keep a bird song diary. Have you ever heard a bird singing and wondered "What kind of bird is that?". Bird Song Id is a great tool to help you learn to quickly and easily identify birds by their songs and calls. It's great fun to use too. With Bird Song Id, identification can be enjoyed by the whole family. Bird Song Id has been created by professional published ecologists. The app does not need an internet connection, all songs and calls are downloaded when the app is purchased, one hundred and eighteen species are included. We have included an early version of Automatic Recognition in the app for you to try. We hope this feature will help you identify common bird species. However, it needs a good quality recording to work, and takes a bit of time and patience to get used to. Automatic Recognition takes place on the device, no connection to the internet or mobile network is needed. How successful is it? Our aim is to get the correct bird in the top three of those listed. In our testing of over 1,000 samples we found the success rate to be 85%. Remember this is an early release of this innovative feature, so please be gentle. A demo is available on YouTube. --------------- HELP ---------------- Automatic Recognition needs a good quality recording of the bird ------------- Remove the case from your iPhone if you use one as this will significantly dampen the microphone ------------- Only record when it is very quiet, apart from the bird singing of course ------------- Be close to the bird singing, as close as you can be without disturbing it ------------- Only record when a single bird is singing, or when a single bird is dominant ------------- The analysis graph should have plenty of blue and green colors with few or no black peaks ------------- Be patient, dont expect miracles, the system works but needs good clear recordings ------------- The peaks on the graph should reach all the way to the top. Low peaks indicate poor quality and recognition is unlikely ------------- A difference between two birds of less than 10% is not that significant, so listen to the samples from both to help you further ------------- The microphone is at the bottom of an iPhone, point the bottom of the phone towards the bird ------------- Record a single bird at a time ------------- Record for the full 30 seconds ------------- Avoid windy conditions. Air moving over the microphone will mask the bird sounds ------------- Playing songs to the app from recorded material on the internet, other apps or CDs is unlikely to work as this material is digitally processed and edited (inter phase gaps are often shortened). They sound very different to recording birds for real on an iPhone or iPad in the natural environment. -------------

  • Fun to Listen to Songs

    By digitalShe
    I like listening to the calls and songs, then trying to identify the sounds I’m hearing. The microphone recorder on the phone doesn’t work so well so it seems to have trouble reviewing the recordings.
  • Birds-gone

    By ziffleswieg
    Worthless. Save your money and time. Once you figure out what to actually do it requires 30 seconds of uninterrupted song to make an ID, and it self shuts off at any point the sound is inadequate, which is always. Never had it ID anything.
  • Love it!

    Take it into the garden, play the call, and listen to the birds respond.

    Great app!
  • Bird calls

    By axewqyt
    What a waste of money. Not very User-friendly. Still cannot figure out how to record and identify bird calls. No home button either to start over. This app just does not make sense.
  • Not complete yet

    By Merle Hay
    This is an app that has a good idea but has a long way to go. Birds have many different songs but the app will only recognize one per bird. It also has a hard time even distinguishing the ones it has on file. Was directly under a wren recording and it was third choice. At this time it should be free until it is developed. Not worth the $4.99 price at this point.
  • Not what it says it is

    By ledofsaxon
    I tried several auto recordings and none were identified. Also the manual ID doesn’t limit by the region even though it is one of the criteria. I think this was a very wasted purchase and I will just delete it. There is no way they give you to comment or contact directly. Must be a reason.
  • Works as advertised!

    By Son of FE
    Very informative
  • Simple to use App - like Shazam for birds!

    By Michael5508
    This app is really great as it does what it says. It automatically recognizes birds by their songs and calls. You only need to press the auto rec button in the middle of the main screen. This clever little helper will immediately helps to identify the bird singing in your backyard. The clearly arranged design makes the app very easy to use. You can choose from two screens how you like to group the birds. Either by name or by bird group. I prefer the group view as it is reasoned and the images are larger and I love to browse between all these different birds. I am not a birding expert but I always liked to know what’s around me. Thanks to the app this has changed! It was a nice way to become - or at least to feel like - the bird expert in your neighborhood. I always loved to track down the birds in my backyard. In the past I used a book for identifying birds but of course there were no sounds in the book and unlike a book on a shelf, I always have the app with me on my iPhone. Besides the nice automatic song and call recognition the app also comes with a lot of additional information for all the different birds. It has many nice and informative images and all the bird songs and calls. There is also a quiz in it and you can collect your own recordings. By using this app I’ve already learned quite a number of new birds. It can sometimes be a little tricky to find a quiet spot to record but then it really works well! Shazam for birds I would call it! Sometimes I don’t actually see the singing bird but thanks to the images in the app I still learn how it really looks like. That's how I became the chief backyard birder of my family.
  • Does not identify birds correctly.

    By beymore
    Maybe it just is not designed for Pacific NW birds. Even with ideal recording conditions it can’t identify correctly. I am just going to erase the app.
