Just discovered birdnet app and downloaded it onto my phone. What fun!
We have these small twittery birds that sit high up in our trees and I thought I’d worked out what they were but wasn’t completely sure. Pointed my phone at one of them and birdnet has confirmed what I thought - they are common whitethroats.
The app has been developed by Cornell University and it’s free. It’s really well done as you can click onto further links which tell you more about the bird and you can watch videos and recordings to get extra confirmation it really is that bird.
Birdnet is a really great app. And another I use along the same lines, a plant identification app called ‘Picture this’. Photograph a plant, leaves, flowers and it identifies it almost always. There’s a free trial, but I found it so useful, I pay $20/year subscription or something like that. I’ve found some useful and valuable plants that was, as well as just snapping any I don’t recognise.
@Pir8ped That’s good to know John. I was wondering whether there was a plant equivalent. I’ve got some self-seeded trees and a small thing in a pot that came as an intruder in an arrangement - I’m not sure it isn’t a cannabis plant!
