Audio Recognition App “Warblr” (Shazam For Birds) Launches in UK

Note: This app appears to only be available in UK iTunes App Store.

From The Telegraph:

A new app that can identify the songs of 220 British birds is launched today.

Warblr, has been developed by two scientists, Florence Wilkinson and Dan Stowell, using a grant from Queen Mary University of London’s Innovation Fund.

The app which costs £3.99 works in a similar way to Shazam, the music app which identifies songs playing from a huge database of tracks.
Users make a recording with their mobile device, Warblr then provides a list of the most likely species responsible for the birdsong, along with information about each bird.
