birdJam Bird Songs for your MP3 Player - A Review
Learn Bird Songs with Technology!
Have you heard about birdJam, formerly
known as birdPod? It's a revolution in bird
song identification and the hottest bird ID tool on the market today*.
*EDIT: This page was written years ago before smart phones and apps.
There are now some really
Birding Apps for iphone, ipod touch, ipad, blackberry and other android devices
that do bird song id, bird id, infor about birding hotspots, conservation and
If you've ever been in the field with
your CDs, tapes or 8-tracks (hehe),
fumbling around, searching for the right bird song track, you're gonna really
appreciate what this software has done for us birders.
Geographical Versions Available
East, West and North American versions are available with up to 650 bird songs organized
into intuitive habitat and family playlists for rapid access in 15 seconds or
less. At last, truly useful technology.
Unlike CDs or
tapes, it is easy and fast to scroll through the well-organized
playlists in the field or at home for bird song identification.
Quickest Way to Listen to and Learn 100s of Bird Songs
But why can't I just load bird songs onto an iPod myself without the birdJam Maker,
Well, you can, but it would literally take you weeks to create the built-in benefits.
Use your precious time birding, not doing tedious tasks - that's what technology
We think birdJam is now the easiest and quickest way to learn bird songs. We
would recommend this product to anyone that is interested in bird song identification.
Lang Elliott of NatureSound Studio: "Every birder will have to have one
of these. Accessing a comprehensive bird song library using birdJam is way more
convenient than dealing with multiple CDs--there's really no comparison."
Steve Martin, Ph.D. (ornithology): "As a serious and long-time birder, I
value the quick field validation birdJam provides for inconclusive visual
identification situations. The powerful combination of auditory cues, along
with visual, behavioral and habitat information, addresses uncertainties that
Georgann Schmalz, Birding Adventures, Inc. ornithologist: "Organizing
bird songs on an iPod into playlists by families, habitats,
hard-to-learn-species, sound-alike species, whatever, is extremely convenient,
easy and couldn't be done previously. With playlists, you can match the real
song to a select group of songs on your birdJam right in the field."
"I want to say what a great idea the BirdPod is. We've already enjoyed it
thoroughly and think its a brilliant idea. We are avid advanced beginner
birders and own the Bird Identiflyer, which although its cute and fun, isn't as
effective or helpful in the field as we would like."
We were resigned to having to organize bird calls ourselves on our iPod, and
then we found birdPod had already done it for us, saving us tons of time and
doing a good job of it. We recommend it to other birders."
