Merlin Bird App!. Go to the Cornell University Bird website and download for free their bird identification app to either your iPod or your Android phone. This app allows you to identify over 400 North American birds. Since I usually have my phone close by, I have used this app to identify birds immediately rather than running for a guide or my camera.
On May 8, 2015, I used the app to identify a rare Red-breasted Nuthatch that was at my feeder. This is a smaller blue bird with rust colored belly and black and white markings on the head. They like trees and occasionally go to feeders!
