Bird Song Identifier is no help at all
At first glance you might think this is an awesome way to identify birds in the wild or in your backyard, by the song they sing. After all, it’s got a 54 page song book and a scanner that looks like a pen. This is just what you needed to identify birds by sound. Except it’s not quite what you think.

You scan the barcode for a bird, and then you can listen to a digital recording of the song from the speaker. That’s all well and good if you need to know what a bird sounds like, but it doesn’t help you identify a song you hear just now outside. The only thing to do is scan through all the damn birds in the book! In short, this device is for the birds!
