Song Sleuth Support Articles

What species can be identified by Song Sleuth?

The full list of species is here.   

Note: The app does not include shorebirds as they are less likely to vocalize and very limited in region. Mockingbirds and other mimics are not included because they imitate the songs of other species, rather than having a distinctive song of their own.

A variety of sounds from each species are covered (e.g. chickadees can be identified by either the whistled song or the "chik-a-dee" call) but in general only longer and more complex (more distinctive) sounds are recognized. Short chips and squeaks are not "known" to the app and will not be identified, nor are woodpecker drumming sounds.
