Includes Automatic Recognition to help identify bird song.
Make your own bird song recordings and keep a bird song diary.
Bird Song Id is the most functional Bird Song app on the market by far.
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. Its 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 of Bird Song Id 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 device 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 Bird Song Id graph should reach all the way to the top. Low peaks indicate poor quality and recognition is unlikely
The highest score should be above 80% to be useful. Below this and the system is telling you it is not sure what the song is
A difference between two birds of less than 10% is not that significant, so listen to the samples from both to help you further
See the samples for how the analysis graph should look
Find the microphone on your device, point it towards the bird
Record a single bird at a time
Capture at least two singing episodes if you can
Record for the full 30 seconds
Avoid windy conditions when using Bird Song Id. Air moving over the microphone will mask the bird sounds
Make sure there is plenty of life in the battery. Your device will reduce power going to the microphone as the battery runs down
Some devices such as large tablets have poor microphones and an external mic may be needed to get good quality recordings
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.

Forget about notebooks, pencils and sitting at your computer. Transform your bird sightings into eBird submissions to build your own lists while sharing your sightings and supporting conservation.
You’ll enter more lists with BirdLog and enter them more accurately. It is easy to tally birds as you go—and thus counting them more accurately, automatically capturing the time and duration, and using the device’s GPS and map interface for greater precision of locations.
BirdLog was developed by active eBird users as a power app for submitting data into eBird. If you are not already familiar with eBird, we recommend that you visit ebird.org and register before using BirdLog the first time.
Here's what some birders are saying about BirdLog, the only app for directly submitting sightings into eBird from the field:
★ “BirdLog will fundamentally change the way we go birding,” Chris Wood, eBird Project Leader.
★ “I enter more checklists simply because it’s so easy, and still have more free time at home. I’ve waited for in-the-field data entry for years,” Marshall Iliff, eBird Project Manager.
★ “The ability to record real-time bird observations in the field and have them flow directly into the eBird database has huge implications, not just for birders and eBird, but for citizen-science in general,” Brian Sullivan, eBird Project Manager.
★ “BirdLog is stunning in its simplicity and efficiency. I now enter my almost daily observations in the field with greater accuracy in time, date, and numbers,” Ohio eBirder.
BirdsEye BirdLog is the exclusive mobile data entry app for eBird that allows you to:
✔ Plot the exact location of your sightings using your phone's GPS
✔ Create new personal locations or choose an existing hotspot or personal location for your checklist
✔ Create checklists even when there is no cell coverage to later submission to eBird
✔ Enter birds quickly and easily as you see them using bird codes or full names
✔ Scroll and review your checklist before submitting it
Our company is committed to birds, the birding community and bird conservation. Every BirdLog purchase you make directly supports the eBird project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. We think they’re worth it—now and for the future of birds and their habitats.
This version covers Mexico and Central America only. Our world version, called BirdLog Worldwide is available for birders who want world coverage. The advantage of the regional versions compared to the world version is that the lists are smaller and slightly faster because they do not need to juggle the full worldwide taxonomy, and because they offer a much shorter default list for use when creating a checklist offline.
