This app offers quick identification help for all levels of bird watchers and outdoor enthusiasts to help you learn about the birds in any country in the world.
According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, maker of the app, "...Merlin’s ability to identify birds seems like magic, but is powered by science. Merlin asks you five questions about the bird you saw, then draws upon more than 750 million observations from eBird to show you the most likely species at your location and time of year."
You can also upload a photo and challenge Merlin to identify it using its computer vision capability, powered by artificial intelligence trained with millions of bird photos submitted with eBird checklists to the Lab’s Macaulay Library.
The app is free. Download the Merlin app on your phone, then select "Bird Packs", find the one you want, and tap "Get". Each Bird Pack provides a field guide to the birds in your current location, or a region you select.
The app has a 4.9 stars review from over 73,000 users. Available for both Android and Apple iOS.
