7:30 p.m. “What’s that bird?” Ask Merlin, the innovative bird identification app from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.  Just like magic, Merlin Bird ID will help  you solve the mystery.

Merlin Bird ID helps you identify the birds you see and hear.  Merlin is unlike any other bird app – it’s powered by eBird, the world’s largest database of bird sightings, sounds, and photos.

Merlin offers four fun ways to identify birds.  Answer a few questions, upload a photo, record a singing bird, or explore birds in a region.  Join Matthew Cvetas, eBirdData Reviewer and former president of both Illinois Ornithological Society and Illinois Young Birders, to learn more about how this app works, including a brief overview of its features, integration with your eBird account, and its bird ID capabilities. The program will be on Zoom and will be recorded.
