MERLIN – Look & Learn App
Another great hiking app for learning is Merlin from Cornell University. It’s basically Shazam but for bird sound! There are numerous times I’ve heard a bird call and wished I was more knowledgeable to tell what bird it was. This app answers the questions for me! You can also identify birds based on what they look like. Just answer three simple questions about a bird you are trying to identify and Merlin will give you a list of possible matches.
