Having written yesterday about what how being on my phone or computer for too long can suck me into a bad mood, today I’m excited about a birding app someone showed me, MerlinBirdID.com. I haven’t explored it fully but tried it out on the waterbird I saw a few weeks ago and wrote about here. I just entered information about what it looked like and where I saw it and the app suggested that it might be the bird above. You can also record bird song or take a picture and get identification. There’s also an “explore birds” tab that looks like fun. I’m looking forward to trying out the app in my back yard and when we take the dogs for walks in the woods.
