So fitting that birders use the bird app. Other key apps are Merlin for ID’ing birds and eBird for logging your sightings and seeing others’ sightings, both made by the Cornell Ornithology Lab. On eBird, you can compile your life list, or all the different species you’ve seen in your life, as well as year list, county list, etc. Young birders hang out on Discord.

Who would look at this bird and decide to name it red-BELLIED? OK, so the belly has a tiny reddish section, but who could honestly see that in the field? Ring-necked ducks have a ring around their…bill. And, neither Tennessee warblers nor Nashville warblers hang out in Tennessee (except when migrating through).
