What is BirdGenie™?
BirdGenie™ is a new app that allows you to identify birds by the songs they sing. By simply pointing your phone at the bird and tapping the record button, BirdGenie™ analyzes the sound and quickly returns the name and information about the bird.
What birds will BirdGenie™ identify?
BirdGenie currently supports almost 200 vocalization types of 100 of the most common and vocal species across North America, covering virtually everything the average user might hear. Use it in your backyard, local park or on hikes. It will help you identify and learn more about the species singing around you.
Will you add more birds to BirdGenie™?
Absolutely! Even as these apps are being released, we are working away at on additional species for the US. Our goal is to cover every vocalizing species in the country, both through updates to BirdGenie™ East/West and with future products.
What area does BirdGenie™ Cover?
BirdGenie™ is available for the East and the West in the US. We used the Great Plains/Rocky Mountains as the dividing line between these two areas.
Will you add more areas to BirdGenie™?
Once we have completely covered the US, we would love to expand BirdGenie™ to other countries and regions. Stay tuned!
What habitats will BirdGenie™ work in?
BirdGenie™ focuses on backyard and park birds, the birds you are most likely to hear in your yard or while going for a walk. It does not cover some of the rarer migratory birds such as many of the warblers, which you might find in more of a birding destination area. We expect to add those in a future versions and products.
