Bird Song Id - Dave Farrow's guide to garden birds - Songs and calls of the British Isles
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Identify garden birds by their songs and calls.
Make your own bird song recordings too and keep a bird song diary.
The highest quality, most functional Bird Song app on the market by far.
Dave Farrow is one of Britain's top bird song experts and is the author of several books including the popular 'Field Guide to the Bird Songs and Call of Britain and Northern Europe'.
Have you ever heard a bird singing in your garden and wondered "What kind of bird is that?". This app is a great tool to help you learn to quickly and easily identify garden birds by their songs and calls. Its great fun to use too! Identification can be enjoyed by the whole family, and can engage children with the natural world around them.
Dave Farrow's guide to garden bird song identification has been created by professional published ecologists and uses Robin Chittenden's proprietary image library.
Isoperla apps appear in Countryfile's top 10, and have been described as "incredibly useful" by ITV's Seth Conway and "lovely" by Adam Vaughan of the Guardian.
We only use professional published content.
The app does not need an internet connection, all songs and calls are downloaded when the app is purchased, seventy four species in total.
Manual identification is available for all species included in the app. With manual identification you simply listen to birds and answer a few questions on the sounds you are hearing to help identify them.
We have included an early trial release of Automatic Recognition in the app for you to have a play with if you like. We hope this feature will help you identify common bird species, but it needs a good quality recording to work, and takes a bit of time and patience to get used to. Automatic Recognition takes place on the device, no connection to the internet or mobile network is needed. Remember this is an early release of this innovative feature, so please be gentle! Follow the Developer Website link to see a demo of Automatic Recognition on YouTube.
If you visit bird reserves and conservation areas you might find our BirdSongId Automatic Recognition and Reference app useful too:

Useful yes, but a delight too.
I have used this effectively to identify live bird song, but I also use it to teach myself the songs and calls if the birds in my area. A really lovely app.
More please ...
I love it - and am learning the songs quite quickly. All I ask is for more birds please.
Nice Little App.
Funny how much more you can get from the garden. This little app opens another window for you. Give it a spin.
