  1. I just found this article. If you can find a way to measure your IPD you could determine what options you might have. https://www.bestbinocularsreviews.com/blog/interpupillary-distance-binoculars-06/
  2. The old interpupillary distance problem. My wife uses Vortex Raptors and can't use other models she's tried. That said, we did find another person who had the same problem who wasn't able to use these, either. I don't know what brick-and-mortar stores are still out there that sell binos to any large extent (there are several suggestions in earlier posts in this thread), but you're safest bet it to go somewhere where you can get your hands on the choices and try them out. Your problem is a real one, but I suspect you can find a solution. It would be helpful if the manufacturers would publish the interpupillary range for their various models, but I don't think I've ever seen that. https://vortexoptics.com/binoculars/raptor-binoculars.html
  3. Chickadee with a mouthful of cattail fuzz.
  4. Yes, that's the way it works. I just wasn't sure whether the OP had some other purpose for the graphic representation.
  5. This is interesting. I spent half the morning learning a bit. It isn't really the recorder that creates the spectograph, or sonogram, or whatever it is, but software. For me, I have been making movies with my camera, then stripping the audio, and uploading the sound file to eBird. I don't know what they do to display the information that you're looking at. I've started playing with recording directly onto my iPad. I'm waiting on a cable that I can use to connect my external microphone to see if that is better. However, this morning I decided to see if I can create my own. All I had to do was change a setting on the software I use to edit the sound file before uploading (Audacity). I don't know (yet) what I'd have to do to export the visual part. So, I guess it depends on what it is that you want to do with the picture.
  6. This article recommends 'Voice Record Pro'. I've just started using it, and in my non-expert opinion it works well. I don't have an iPhone, but I have it on an iPad. https://support.ebird.org/en/support/solutions/articles/48001064305-smartphone-recording-tips
  7. Not sure what your question means. Are you referring to the histogram, the visual representation, rather than the audio?
  8. I'll take a wild guess and say Ruby-crowned Kinglet.
  9. I'm reading 'Sparrows of North America' by Rick Wright. I'm not sure I'm learning much, but it's interesting and appears to be pretty thorough. There are a lot of sub-species, especially regionally, which can make it tough if you move around much.
  10. I've used an app called Larkwire. It's pretty good, in its way. I think there's a version for both Apple and Android devices.
  11. Monocular, but there' always this thing, if you've got the money. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/news/swarovski-and-cornell-lab-collaborate-on-a-digitalguide-that-can-id-what-youre-seeing/
  12. I'm pretty sure this referred to a 2nd bird in the first photo, which I hadn't seen until the post mentioned it.
  13. Time of day might be useful. I'm guessing daytime, but it might be good to be sure.
