"Larkwire is already helping immensely with my ability to bird in the
field. And my 7-year-old daughter is asking for 'that bird song game on the
computer.'—I guess you have THREE of us hooked!" (Courtenay Schurman,
Mountaineering Trainer)

"It's like having a personal teacher who can pinpoint my weaknesses and make
me work on them as I play. By far the best value for your money when you
think about buying an avian audio guide." (Alain Clavette, aka @Acadian_Birder)

"A fantastic tool for learning and reviewing birdsong. ... What I can vouch

program is sure to improve the speed and accuracy with which you identify
birds by ear." (David Pugh, Calgary Birder)

These are both great apps. These apps have helped me master bird songs. Would highly recommend for anyone getting started in bird song ID.

Miles ahead of competition

King Eider

I love this tool. I've recommended it to scores of fellow birders. I use this daily because it is fun and I see results. Results that have been very slow and easily lost using various CD tools like the Peterson guides and John Feith's guide. The other apps in the same category are lacking in content (variations within same species) and instruction (Michael O'Brien's snippets are eerily good).

Are there bad things about this app? Yes. It would seem development has halted. There have been no updates for the new iPhone screen sizes and no new content. One might suspect the price is too low to fund any further attention. Compare it to the BirdsEye family of apps that constantly ask for more money but do provide updates on a regular basis.

Grab a decent pair of headphones, use this app often, and enjoy the best deal in birding.

Essential tool for birding by ear

Colinroots

The absolute best learning tool for learning bird sounds. Much more effective than merely listening to recordings, as this app forces you to engage and be an active (not passive) learner.
You can customize to practice distinguishing between similar-sounding species. Create your own play lists. I recommend it all the time.
