The Uncommon White Breasted Nuthacth

I had been watching a bird cleaning out a bird house I have mounted on a tree near my feeder but was having a problem matching the photo I took and a bird identifying book that we use.
I downloaded this app and it identified the bird for me painlessly!
I sent a message to the Facebook page to confirm that our birds nesting in a house was normal and almost immediately I got a response from a very attentive and proud owner of the app & site. Turns out our Nuthatches are uncommon but they do sometimes use bird house!
Great app !

Thanks for the feedback Jackie!

OK so I tested this On a black capped chickadee seeing if it worked and it so in accurate it’s classified it as a Woodcock or something like that and I took another picture of it and then it’s still classified it as a type of Woodcock. And then I tried it on a Robin... wasn’t accurate they called it like a Woodcock or something a Woodcock or northern cardinal if I do remember correctly. So it’s inaccurate i’m going to head down to a pond probably and try it out on a mallard duck.

Thanks for the feedback! Make sure to zoom in and frame the bird as much as possible for better results. Also, stay tuned for further updates since we're improving our ID algorithm every day now. Happy birding!

Don’t Bother

I was excited to use this app because it creates a collection of identified birds. I was willing to watch ads to see if I liked it and then would pay the 2.99 to upgrade. Instead, I don’t even want the app. It makes me watch 5 or 6 videos in a row before it will let me ID anything, and by then, the bird is gone. Also the camera lags so badly, when I finally do get through the ads, I can’t properly take a picture. I’ll find another bird app to use.
