Over the holidays, I purchased the iBird Explorer PRO app for my iPhone and have been having a lot of fun with it. One of its many features allows the user to keep a list of favourite birds, which I’m using to keep track of the birds I’ve positively identified in the wild. Here is my meagre list so far:
Great Blue Heron
The first bird I identified with the app was this American Dipper my wife and I spotted feeding along the edge of Rolley Lake.
One warning though, listening to the various bird calls and songs included in the app may drive your dog batty. Best not used indoors!
