Record a bird singing and use Automatic Recognition to identify it. The app can work wherever you are - if you don’t have internet or a mobile connection then the app analyses the sound on the device. And unlike other bird apps, our special Bird-Safe mode means that the app can even be used in nature reserves without the risk of disturbing birds.
The app works rather like Shazam® does for music. When you hear a bird, quickly hold up your phone and start recording. The app analyses the sound, and shows you the top matches. You can compare your recording with the reference samples to check the identification. And if you don't have your phone with you, you can use your Apple Watch to record sounds for identification later.
All your recordings are stored on your phone so you can listen to them again or share them with friends. You can help us improve the app by sending us the sound to use in training our system. The best recordings are posted (with your permission) on the Xeno-canto website, the world-wide resource for bird and bird sound research.
"Excitedly playing with it in my garden - robins, blue & great tit so far :):)"
"My new absolute favourite app - #Chirpomatic (It's basically Shazam for birds!!)"
"It is really easy to use and intuitive, which is essential!"
"I've already learnt the calls of 5 garden birds....such a great app."
PLEASE NOTE! The app is designed to identify real live birds under natural conditions. If you test on recorded sounds, you need to play the sounds at a realistic volume and only test on birds that might be found at your location at this time of year.
========= Our bird song apps =========
We have been making bird song apps since the App Store started in 2008, and now have a range of bird and bird song apps for iOS devices - iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad & Apple Watch.
--------------- Chirp! ---------------
Chirp! is our original and most popular bird song app. It has been in the top selling charts every day since it was launched over seven years ago. It has changed considerably in that time as it has grown in size and features.
Chirp! is specifically designed for the identification and learning of birdsongs. However, it is also great if you just want to relax to the sounds of nature.
----------- ChirpOMatic -----------
ChirpOMatic, described above, is our automatic (‘shazam-style’) bird song recognition app.
Because we specialise in bird apps, we know the problems that can arise. Many nature reserves discourage the use of mobile devices as the playing of bird sounds disturbs the birds. But with ChirpOMatic you can switch bird-safe mode on, and use the app safely anywhere. In bird-safe mode you need to hold the device to your ear as though on the phone, in order to hear the sounds.

---- ChirpOMatic & Chirp! bundle ----
The 2 bird song ID apps are available as a bargain bundle. They work together - once you have the ID of a bird in ChirpOMatic, you can tap straight through to the same bird in Chirp!
---- Bird Guide Pro & Pocket Birds ----
These are our reference bird guides, with photos, sounds, notes etc, plus features for recording sightings. Bird Guide Pro is our top-of-the-range app, while Pocket Birds is the budget version.
What's New in Version 2.0.0
Big changes! If you have internet connection, the sound is analysed online by our powerful, new sound analyser. If you don’t have a connection, or if you prefer not to use it, the app analyses the sound on the device with only a small loss of accuracy. Either way, the app is now much more accurate and better able to cope with noises such as wind, voices and cars than previously.
Go to the Settings in the app to turn off network access if you prefer the app to only analyse the sound on the phone.
Am really enjoying this app, it's well designed, easy to use and accurate. I am very impressed!
Tried this out while walking the dog this morning, it managed to successfully identify a chiffchaff, a bluetit and a robin! I'm very impressed.
Very pleased with this update, app now excellent!
