What bird is singing that song?
|That question has driven experts and backyard birders crazy for years. That is, until the BirdSong IdentiFlyer came along and now digital bird song recordings have become an indispensible birding tool to help identify birds. |
The transition from a backyard bird watching to and advanced birder involves a significant amount of learning: two of the most difficult are the bird's field marks and their songs. In fact, experts identify birds 70% of the time by their song. In the past, if you wanted to learn bird songs you would have to struggle with listening to tape recordings of hundreds of bird songs.
But, thanks to the advancements in electronics and digital technology, For The Birds Inc. has been able to design four simple-to-use tools to make your bird identification much easier.
"Why do bird watchers need song recordings in the field?"
Bill Thompson, III, Editor of Bird Watcher's Digest answers the question this way:
"The primary reason is to attract the attention of territorial birds so they can be seen and enjoyed. Used responsibly and in moderation, such playback of bird songs can greatly enhance our birding experience without harming the birds. I also use my audio sets to refresh my memory of key bird songs, to learn new songs, and give my field trip participants an aural idea of what we'll be listening for when searching for a particular target species."
Bird Watching Made Easy and Fun!
Being able to identify a bird call and song is an important component of enhancing your bird watching experience. With our unique bird song identification tools say good bye to difficult-to-use tape and CD bird song recordings.
Steve feeds "George," a Red-winged Black Bird, from his hand.
In 2010, Springtime in Minnesota I borrowed my niece's BirdSong IdentiFlyer to attract Redwing Blackbirds to our feeding stations. They are very territorial,but one little guy was very curious and kept coming up. We named him "George". By the time the females arrived "George" showed off his staked out territories including his peanut gathering abilities to get a mate - only this time I did not put out the peanuts ahead of time and he kept calling for me. I went out on the deck, called him with the IdentiFlyer, shook the non-salted peanut jar, called his name and he came right up. I put some nuts in my hand and he came right over and ate out of the hand. I even feed him one by one.
He spent the winter in Florida. But guess what, he returned back to our yard on St. Patrick's Day. All I had to do was use the IdentiFlyer, shake the peanut jar and say "Hey George" and he came in for his treats. Won't this year's females be amazed again at his abilities to find food.
Thanks to IdentiFlyer we have enjoyed hand-feeding our wild, backyard "friend" George.
