The Great Backyard Bird Count is just around the corner! What better way to brush up on Indian bird identification than with a fun-filled trivia game? The Merlin Bird ID app, developed by the Cornell Lab and powered by machine learning, will be put to the test. Can the app outperform an experienced birder or you, our live audience? Using photos and sounds, we'll determine who can accurately identify the most bird species found in India.
This is an interactive game, so come ready to play! Throughout the game, we'll explore how Merlin “decides” on an ID. Our panelist, Ashwin Viswanathan of Bird Count India, will share advice on how to identify tricky birds—plus, he’ll provide insights into birding during the Great Backyard Bird Count.
