Cornell University and Visipedia research project developed a new tool to identify what species of bird you’re looking at.  Take a pic, upload it, mark it, and then it will be compared with other bird pics online to find the species, including database ebird.org.  Here’s what they said:Lear

ebird.org bird identifyerIn a breakthrough for computer vision and for bird watching, researchers and bird enthusiasts have enabled computers to achieve a task that stumps most humans—identifying hundreds of bird species pictured in photos. Build in concert with the exceedingly popular Merlin app, the Merlin Bird ID tool lets you upload an image of a bird that you’ve photographed, and if the photo shows one of the supported species, it returns the correct species in the top 3 results, 90% of the time. It currently supports 400 species in North America, but will eventually be expanding to more species in North America, and worldwide.

 

Mind you, it’s still in beta (testing phase), so it may not be perfect, however, the more people that use it, the better it will become at identifying specific species.
