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

    I think I'd have to be sitting in the nest for this app to get a recording with enough quality for this app to identify the bird.

    I recorded many loud common birds - clear as a bell recordings...didn’t correctly identify any of them. And their library of birds and their songs is small compared to other apps. Keep working fellas.

    This is NOT the Shazam for birds. Difficult to figure out how to even record the sound. Always says poor sound quality even deep in the woods with no wind and the bird close by. Few birds are in the library, so even trying to play samples doesn’t work. Manual ID section is not user friendly (what IS a short/med/long birdsong length?) Perhaps having samples of each for someone to choose from would be better.

    We love to sit out back to watch and listen to the song birds. We already had an idea of what birds we see but many times we hear the song but can’t see the bird. The songs available to hear has help us.

    I just got this app, so I’m still figuring it out, BUT it seems like a bird song identification app should be more straightforward. The record button isn’t on the first screen, and overall the app seems dated. I’ve used it twice to record birdsong: it correctly matched the birdsong once. Hoping I can use it more to learn about birds in my area.

    It seems like there is a market for an app like this pretends to be, but this doesn't work. Even after navigating the poorly designed interface to the automatic bird ID by call area I couldn't get it to work. Good recording of the call, but not close on I'd.
  • Pretty good but could use a search function

    By DelegatorRFS
    As somebody who doesn’t know bird families (which family is the mockingbird in?) and sometimes not full official names (is it the “Eastern Barn Owl” or just “Barn Owl”?) I could really use a search function to complement the index. Also, the song recognition could benefit from a differentiation between calls and songs as there is in the rest of the app. What is there is good, but it could be better.
  • A simple to use App - it's like Shazam for birds!

    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.

    Perhaps it might work if I were able to get within 3 ft. of a singing bird, and there wasn’t any background noise. I have tried several times to ID a bird that was singing its heart out, but the App failed to ID it in each case. The software is NOT user friendly.
  • Great concept!

    By Avenir1961
    What a cool concept to record and compare bird sounds! Yes, I agree with others, it is a bit unfriendly, but I just played around with it to see how things work. I’m still learning the system, but over all it is doing what it says. Sometimes the recording quality message appears and I don’t know why, perhaps because there are multiple birds calling at once. I hope the developers keep working on it! This, in conjunction with the Audubon app are going to make spring and summer much more fun!
