Ep0159: Merlin Bird ID App for iOS & Android

The Merlin Bird ID app for Android and iOS will help you identify 400 North American bird species. Tell Merlin where you saw the bird, the date, approximate size, up to 3 colors, and what the bird was doing (like eating at a feeder or sitting on a fence). Merlin matches your clues, season, and location to a database of over 70M records to show you the most likely match for your bird. Check the photo results to choose the bird you just saw, and Merlin uses the results to make the database even more accurate. You can learn more about the species including viewing a map of where they're most likely to be found and even listen to recorded bird calls to hear what your bird sounds like. -Lara Killian
