Identify Birds by Song

  Birding by ear.  There's an app for that!

We've all been waiting for it and its finally here!  A Shazam app for bird songs.  (For the uninitiated, the Shazam app will identify the song that is playing in a restaurant, elevator -- pretty much anywhere)

Song Sleuth is an app for your smart phone that will allow you to identify the birds your hear in your garden.  Here is what their website says about it:  

"Song Sleuth is a fun and easy way to learn birding by ear. Everywhere you go, Song Sleuth can listen to the birds singing around you, and instantly show you the most likely bird species that it heard. The app provides all the tools you need to determine which is the correct bird. Save and share your recordings, and learn about each bird with the built-in David Sibley Bird Reference."
