The most functional Bird Song app on the market by far. 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. 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 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.

Not good!

Its difficult to get a good quality recording. App is identifying a Wood Thrush as a Brown Thrasher.


Love it!! Highly recommend...

Useless for me but maybe its my phone?

I dont know what phones the people giving this app 4 and 5 stars have, but Im using an iPhone 5s in my semi rural Central Florida backyard when there is no other ambient noise than the bird call I hear quite clearly and the app keeps on telling me that the recording was of very poor quality. I have tried several times over several days, both with and without the protective case, pointing the microphone in the direction of the bird, with the same results. It seems that unless youre within 10 feet of the bird (and how would that work? The bird would fly away!), the recording quality is always going to be bad. At least Im able to listen to samples to try and identify the calls of the birds that I do know visit my backyard, but I cant identify the ones that wont show themselves and its frustrating. For $5, I expected more of an app. I wish other reviewers would specify which phone they used.

Needs work

Needs work!

Good for learning songs

I am learning the songs of the birds I can identify. While I can record unknown bird songs, the app hasnt yet been able to identify them. Im looking forward to improved song ID but for the price this is a good app.


Doesnt identify birds even if youre close and theyre loud. Keep getting warnings that the audio quality is too low or not long enough. Im sorry I spent money on it.

Love it

Very enjoyable app. My grandson loves it too
