"a great app for the idiot bird watcher like me up to the semi pro bird watcher." - CrazyMikesApps.com
Chirp! includes features for both novices and experienced birders. For novices: birds can be arranged in order of commonness, so you can listen to the most common ones first, then move on to less frequent backyard visitors. For experienced birders: use the custom quiz to help distinguish and learn similar songs.
On first use, Chirp! selects birds for your current location, but then you are free to select any area of the United States on the Map Screen, to learn the common species from east to west and north to south. Or you may prefer to select all birds to learn the whole range! Try sorting by song style, so that you can compare birds that hoot and coo, or those with high pitched songs for example. Make a shortlist of your favourites so that you can find them quickly (tap the + icon above the image to add birds to your favorites list).
After listening, try the quiz to test your memory. Answer fast to earn a score multiplier and get on the high score table!
And when you need a rest, try the slideshow feature - choose which birds to include, maybe add background bird song, then simply relax and dream of springtime :).
