I only recently discovered the free Merlin Bird ID app and it works well (for photos, not so much sounds) even here in NZ. 🐦

users answer a few simple questions or, snap a picture and then [see] a short list of possibilities tailored to location and date.

I like it!

Merlin Basics info. I loaded a rather fuzzy photo into Merlin. Merlin successfully identified the bird.
