Default Bird Recognition App

Are there anyone who has used one of the Apps for recognizing birds by their songs?

When I Googled this the top rated App had poor reviews.

Thanks

Mike

If you choose the right song there's no need for apps - the 'burds' are instantly recognisable.

And for me, there's only one....

Well, actually, two....

Can't decide which one is more stunning and produced better music.

Tend to watch them rather than listen to them. Get a huge variety at the feeders in the garden, picking up dropped seeds as well. House Sparrows, Tree Sparrows, various T1ts, Greenfinches, Goldfinches, Chaffinches, Bullfinches, Siskins, Woodpeckers, Dunnocks, Thrush, Blackbirds.....

Have a good variety of birds in the garden. We mostly have Sparrows this year. Gosh they are noisy by our kitchen door. We also have a rather large number of Starlings this year too. Even more noise. Blackbirds with a number or young, a couple of Magpies, and also a Sparrowhawk.

Who perched about 6ft from the kitchen window a few weeks back. Could do with out that.

Also Greenfinches, Goldfinches a Blackcap and Mistlethrushes.

A nice variety.

We also get the odd Eagle and Osprey. But they are from Lakenheath and Mildenhall.
