Identify Bird Photos With New Tool

Merlin, the Cornell Lab’s popular bird ID app, has spawned a new tool called Merlin Bird Photo ID, and you can help test it out! Just upload a photo, click on the bird’s bill, eye, and tail, and let computer vision help you ID the bird. It currently recognizes 400 common North American bird species. Because it’s powered by machine learning techniques, it gets “smarter” the more people use it. Try it now as a webpage, and help improve the accuracy so this new feature can be added to the Merlin Bird ID app. Try Merlin Bird Photo ID now.
