Wondering if anyone has used an app for identifying bird songs (and/or calls) that one hears while out birding? If so, which one(s) have you used or currently use? Is there one you would recommend or are they all equally lousy? Basically, I'm interested in an app similar to how apps like SoundHound and Shazam work for ID'ing songs one randomly hears. I've found a few in the App Store (ex: Chirp!, Song Sleuth, Chirpomatic, Bird Song ID by Sunbird, etc etc.), but they all have fairly "meh" reviews and/or are expensive for an app when one can't be certain of its accuracy. However, if there is one that has a good broad repertoire and a decent accuracy rate - ideally with the more confusing bird songs or seasonal migrants (warblers, sparrows, flycatchers...), then I don't mind shelling out some $$ if one exist! I'm looking for a unicorn, I know ? Sorry for the drawn out question and thanks!
