The Warbler Guide App

Scott Whittle and Tom Stephenson have been cooking up some really hot stuff for warbler lovers over the last couple of years. They are releasing a new app for The Warbler Guide, featuring filters that let you combine both audio and visual qualities, 3D models of every warbler, and a complete, playable set of vocalizations.

Be among the first to see this video preview about the song feature in the app only here at today:

Unique new app-only features:
  • 3D models of birds in all plumages, rotatable and pinch-zoomable to match field experience of a bird
  • Intuitive, visual, and interactive finders with filters for possible species based on audio and visual criteria chosen by the user
  • Playback of all songs and vocalizations with sonograms makes study of vocalizations easy
  • iPhone® and iPad® versions let you take these useful tools into the field
  • Selectable finder sortings grouped by color, alphabetical order, song type, and taxonomic order
  • Interactive song finder using objective vocabulary for fast ID of unknown songs
  • Simultaneous visual and song finders makes identifying an unknown warbler even easier
  • Half-speed song playback allows for easier study of song structure
  • Comparison species with selectable side, 45 degree, and undertail views
  • Features 75 3D images
  • Covers 48 species and 75 plumages
  • Includes 277 vocalizations, 156 songs, 73 contact calls, and 48 flight calls

  1. I'm waiting for the Windows Phone version of this and other birding apps. (Sibley is one of the few available for Windows Phone.)

  2. No app for windows phone, jeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzzzz. Not everybody is an crapple fan

  3. Sad that you choose to develop for a platform that is at substandard and restrictive. Android? Sigh.
