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. -------------

    In field, as always in field, less than optimal conditions sometimes cause frustration but in general I have been pleased with the app, and use it frequently. It feels great to identify an unfamiliar call!
  • Fun App!

    Many times I've wanted to figure out what bird was chirping or singing in the woods or across a field. This App has been very useful for that, and has helped me learn to recognize quite a few bird songs as well as bird identifications.
  • Very confusing

    I’ve used the app a number of times now but still find the interface bizarre and confusing. What is with the quiz screen in manual ID with the eye and numbers in the corners? Where did my recording go? Why did all the bird options for my automatic recognition disappear after I played the first one? I’ve managed to ID some birds by listening to the recordings and so the catalog of bird songs is useful, but otherwise this is very frustrating. Please fix the interface.
  • Garbage app.

    I purchased the bundle and am not pleased at all. It’s not user friendly and the bird calls don’t even play. I want a refund! Do not purchase. There are free apps that are way better than any of these!!
  • Doesn’t work...EVER

    Got this app to identify a bird I keep hearing in my back yard. I followed instructions and have tried dozens of times but the result is always the same: “no bird was detected on this recording” Refund Please!

    With this app I’ve been able to ID the vocals of a number our feathered friends.
  • Not worth it- don’t waste your money

    I really wish there was a free trial period option for this app because I would have been able to see how useless it is and not wasted $4.99. If there is ANY background noise whatsoever it will tell you it’s poor quality and then pull up a random list of possible birds. The app is unable to correctly identify a Northern Cardinal for crying out loud- I mean those guys have loud and very distinguishable songs. Don’t waste your time or your money, you’ll end up being frustrated and not learning anything. Go to ebird dot com and search their massive library, better luck figuring it out by process of elimination than trying to with this app.
