BirdGenie is indispensible for anyone who wants to learn more about the birds around them. Its highly advanced algorithms and rapid matching system are the most accurate ever developed. Covering all the major song types for over 100 of the most vocal U.S. and Canadian species, BirdGenie™ can identify nearly every species the average listener hears in their backyard, on a hike, or in their local park.
One of the most important features of the app is that it’s easy to use. Just point your smartphone or tablet at a bird and tap the screen when the bird starts singing. The app’s automatic pre-record feature ensures that you won’t miss the beginning of the song. Tap again when the bird stops singing and BirdGenie’s™ patented, highly accurate analysis system matches the recording to the closest species. A sophisticated noise-reduction feature means that you can ID your bird even in noisy environments such as people talking or traffic noise.
Birdgenie isn’t just about giving answers – it’s also a great tool for learning. It comes with a full catalog of the covered species including many samples of songs and spectrograms to compare with your own recording, guaranteeing a confident match. The catalog includes pictures of each species in all seasons, information about habitat and behavior, and links to further reading to teach you more about the bird you’ve selected There are even 3-D models for some species that you can rotate to match your view of a bird. No internet connection is required for anything but sharing, making the program accessible everywhere.
And BirdGenie™isn’t just about the birds in one area. It’s about learning more across the country. Users can anonymously share their recordings with an online database, which can be used by scientists to study populations, song variations, and other aspects of bird life that may ultimately help to preserve them.
