MightyPods has announced the release of birdPod Maker for Mac OS X, new software that helps turn your iPod into a portable field guide to bird songs.
“Unlike a typical bird song CD set, birdPod’s bird songs are organized to enable quick identification of bird songs in the field. We think birdPod is the best tool yet for learning bird songs… At it’s core, birdPod is an extremely well organized series of bird song playlists. Generated from a large collection of excellent recordings (the Stokes Field Guide to Bird Songs, Eastern Region), these playlists group birds by habitat or family group — which makes the playlists very useful for both learning bird songs and the identification of birds.”
birdPod is priced at $98.95. MightyPods also offers iPods pre-loaded with the software for about a $50 premium over retail. The company says a Windows version of birdPod Maker will be released next month.
