Struggling to identify a bird? Technology might have the answer!
Warblr. A new mobile app currently being created is allowing users to identify birds just through their song. Created by research and development teams at Queen Mary University, the aim of the app is to bring the public closer to the natural environment through the power of technology.
The app will also be used for conservation efforts. When a bird species has been identified the GPS location will be recorded in order to register where certain species are being found, showing conservationists bird migration patterns and species that are becoming more prominent or dying out. Some bird song specialists have noted that there may be difficulties with the the regional variations of the same bird species. Although Warblr is in the early stages of development there is a positive outlook for the app.
