iBird Apps

I've been looking for some "apps" for my phone that would help me identify birds since I generally carry my phone with me.  Thus far, I've downloaded both "i Bird Lite" and i Bird Pro.  The latter requires WiFi since it houses in excess of 900 birds.  The former was insufficient for what I wanted to have access to and learn from as far as an application goes.  The latter has a much broader base of birds and only cost a few bucks.

So, in the evening when the sun drops behind the trees in the yard, I take my phone outside with me while I sit, relax and keep the dogs company.  The past few months, we've had a lot of Eastern Towhees here.  


They're the ones whose melody sounds like "drink your tea" and are so bold and brilliant in their markings, they're unmistakable.  Quite often, I open the "app" and play the calls as they come in to feed.

Oh, one more thing...
did you notice I went green?
After all, green goes with everything.
Mother Nature uses it all the time!

  5. We don't have towhees over here. What branch of bird-dom do they belong to? They have a sort of finch thing going on - but I have no idea how big they are.
