Learn to Identify Birdsongs!
Birdwatching Daily calls iKnowBirdSongs, “fun, effective, and addicting.” What makes this app unique and so effective is that it uses active learning methods that engage users and quicken the learning process. iKBS allows users to identify bird songs as they actually do in the field: by hearing a song before seeing the bird. After using iKBS, when you hear a bird song, you’ll know the bird species!
Designed for both the seasoned birder to test their knowledge and the novice whose passion for birdwatching is just beginning. Intuitive and fun, iKBS was created by birders for birders.
iKnowBirdSongs uses photos and songs from the Macaulay Library. Your purchase helps support the work of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
