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.
