    Amazing App for easy Bird ID

    This app is wonderful! I knew next to nothing about birds until a Eastern Goldfinch landed in my bird bath one day spurring interest into exactly what the name of this beautiful bird was. I searched inline but characteristics I described didn’t help me find what I was looking for so I checked in the App Store for a bird identification app finding many games but only a couple of identification apps I downloaded 3 but found this to be the best for me. Since then I have become an avid bird watcher! The app is easy to use even for me. I was disabled by a drunk driver in 05’ & fed up with tv so great to find a hobby I can enjoy outdoors. Even my parents joined in & my daddy after suffering a head injury himself in 2011 took up the hobby along with wood working. Together we would make feeders & houses to help attract more birds. He would build & I would paint different types of houses I researched on the website to help attract birds of all types. Unfortunately We lost him to cancer in February of this year (2018) but the time we spent birding together these past 7 years is something I’ll always hold near & dear to my heart. Thanks so much to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Birds in the Hand, & the developers of the Merlin Bird ID for providing us with this wonderful app that has given me some very sweet memories & a wonderful hobby.

    Best free birding app

    This app got me started with birding. Last spring, I downloaded it to start identifying the common birds around me like American Robins, European Starlings, Common Grackles, and Northern Mockingbirds. Soon, I moved from merely identifying birds to counting them also, and soon after, I started recording full checklists with the EBird app (I think also a product of the Cornell School of Ornithology?), which is the best solution for those who wish this app would record their sightings. Now, less than a year later, I have 150 species on my list and have found a new lifelong hobby that I expect to bring me joy for decades to come. It’s all thanks to Merlin! Though I eventually found that a high quality illustrated field guide (I use Sibleys in the US and Collins in Europe) is more useful than any app, I still reference Merlin for sounds or any time I don’t have my guide on me. I was very excited when Merlin came out with bird packs for Europe right before I traveled to Greece this past fall, and I look forward to seeing more bird packs coming out for other parts of the world as time goes on. It’s fun to scroll through the foreign packs and dream about traveling to new places and seeing those birds. I’d glad that when I do go, I’ll have Merlin with me to help identify them!

    Best resource for the novice birder.

    I’ve had this app for a few years now and just wanted to test it out. It’s probably not very helpful that I’m just now getting around to it. I was initially pretty disappointed at first because the number of species specific to Alaska was fairly limited. It took a little time, but they rolled out regional specific bird packs. It just blew up from there and became my go-to app for identifying birds. The photo ID feature is pretty great, but limited only by the quality of my phone camera. It’s usually pretty accurate though. I’ve just gotten way more interested in birds I really didn’t pay attention to before! The app is great and if you enjoy birds of all sizes in your area, chances are this app will be instrumental in identifying them. I think I use it more than any other app I have. Oh yeah, I also really love the bird sounds feature. This is also very useful when you can’t necessarily see the bird, but you might have a close idea of what it could be. Do check it out, this is well put together app overall. I wonder if they’ll have a feature where you could identify simply by recording a song or a call? I’m excited for any new developments in the future!

    Highly Recommend

    This is probably one of the highest quality apps I have ever come across. It is very clear well-made and easy to use. And aside from looking good and being user-friendly it also has great information within it. It includes photos calls pictures and all sorts of other cool things that are really useful. They also have a list of all the birds in your area as well as out of your area but aside from that they also have a feature where you can fill out a quick five question survey or form (whatever you want to call it) that will immediately give you a list of birds that match your inputs to the form. And finally one of their other cool features is the photo identification. Well it is hard to get a good photo of birds if you can get even a decent one you can enter the photo and it will pull up a list of possible birds. So it is definitely a five star were the app are use it it’s great to identify birds and it’s very user-friendly. Frankly they could charge money for this app but they don’t and that’s great.

    Great app! Highly recommended!

    This app has got me into bird watching more then ever! Not only is great to ID birds with, but to call them in as well. It is so cool to be listening to a cardinal call on the app then all of the sudden have that bird fly into your yard and talk back to you! Such a great experience. I’ve even had Grey Cat Birds fly and land right next to me, 2 feet away, and talk to me. I’ve listen to the calls so many times now that I can ID a bird without even pulling up the app just by the sound they make! This app has also taught me many things about many different kinds of birds. This has helped me improve my feeder station to attract those kinds of birds. Before I would get maybe 20 birds a day. Now I get over 100! I highly recommend this app for someone looking to learn and ID birds more easily. I’ve been loving so far, and I don’t plan on deleting anytime soon!
