NEW! Chirp! USA

It's been a busy day! At long last, after months of work, Chirp! USA arrived in the AppStore, and the new version of Chirp! Europe was also released.

So now we need to plan for adding more birds to each app. This is not a straightforward job in Europe, as Chirp! is now in 6 languages, thanks to Erik Myklebust, who provided a full translation into Norwegian. It is only fair to the translators to have the bird song descriptions translated in batches, so decisions need to be made in advance as to which birds will be included each week. We have chosen birds for the next few weeks from the feedback we've been having, so please keep sending suggestions!

For the USA, it is much simpler, so we intend to add birds as quickly as we can, choosing from feedback emails whenever possible. Suggestions so far for next week include the Pileated Woodpecker, one of the Grosbeaks (Red-breasted Grosbeak image above by Flickr's rjones0856) and the Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. Please send more suggestions!

  1. How about the Empid Flycatchers birds that can often only be identified by voice.
