Thanks Pete -

BirdNET has been successful for me with Eastern Towhee, Yellow Warbler,
Song Sparrow and Scarlet Tanager. It dipped on a still unidentified warbler
from last week--possibly a redstart, but the song seemed too long.

I've also tried to fool it into thinking I'm a White-throated Sparrow - it
has fallen for it once, and a few times it nailed the ID as a "human
whistle". Pretty fun to play around with.

One warning - if you record the song and submit it for analysis and the AI
DOESN'T come up with a confident ID, the recording *does not get saved*.
You can get around this by going into the app setting and turning storage
to "ON" your files will then be saved in a dedicated BirdNET folder.

For the recordings it does ID, it makes a handy list and allows easy access
to the recording snippet. Hope people will check it out. iOS version is in
the works.
