How about Shazam (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shazam_(service)) for bird songs? You open the app, it records for 10 seconds (or a minute), sends it off for processing, and then tells you what birds are singing? Or maybe gives you a match % - i.e., 97% probability that's a Blackburnian Warbler singing over your head, the one you can't hear any more. Plus, there's a Kentucky Warbler and a Wood Thrush nearby...

It can be tough to separate the wheat from the chaff! Now I'm imagining trying to do it for 50 states + 13 Canadian provinces/territories... oh, and D.C. too? What about Puerto Rico? :-)

Some pretty good birds at Alamo Lake in AZ too - Lesser Black-backed Gull (potential 5th record), Mew Gull, Red-necked Grebe. See: http://birding.aba.org/message.php?mesid=365956&MLID=AZ&MLNM=Arizona%20and%20New%20Mexico

Sandwich Terns do NOT make good sandwiches, despite the name.
Hi Bill - I use the built in mic. I looked around for an external but couldn't find one I liked, plus didn't know how I would keep from losing it. I didn't know about the one above, though, so I may reconsider.

Thanks for this helpful summary, Bill. I've been using Blue FiRe for recording for a couple years and have been pleased. It's pretty versatile, and free: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/blue-fire/id336713577?mt=8 Here's a couple recordings I've made with it.
