    I used the app for the first time yesterday and it could not identify my bird in question.
    I’m thinking it’s because it wasn’t a close up.
    I’ll try again today and see if I can get a closer shot.
    They have it programmed for a picture of the eye for identification, so a close up is probably required for the app to work.
    If I can get it to work it will be a great asset for field identification.
