Product Recommendation: Larkwire

by on Oct.07, 2012, under Uncategorized

I’ve been recommending this to all my birder friends for months now and am doing it here now because they’re offering a free version of their new songs in exchange for it: if you’re a birdwatcher here in the U.S. and you want to learn to bird by ear, you really must check out Larkwire. I’d been trying for years to learn birdsongs just by listening to the recordings, and made very little progress, but Larkwire gives you the equivalent of audio flash cards, organized into groups of four to eight that are similar. It’s totally revolutionized my birding–I found my first ever Bay-breasted Warbler in Prospect Park because I recognized its song and went looking for it.

Up until now they only offered land birds, but now they’re coming out with a new songpack for waterbirds, and I couldn’t be more excited.
