Earlier this week on Facebook, one of my friends shared this terrific sparrow poster created by Richard Edden.
It’s a very handy chart if you’re out in the field and quickly want to compare sparrow “faces”.
A few days later, Mr. Edden shared a poster of “warbler faces” and also announced that he’s working on an app called BirdFace, which will be out soon!
In reply to a Facebook query I sent him, Mr. Edden replied, ”Within 24 hours of posting the first graphic online, there was so much positive feedback and support from MD [Maryland] birders, but also throughout the US, that I decided to jump to producing an app, BirdFace. This is my first foray into iOS App programming, so BirdFace is an exciting, evolving project, with on-going feedback through Facebook. The anticipated release date in App Store is April 12th, and I can’t wait to see what happens next.”
