      Is there such a thing as a guide that gives you similar birds based on their song? For example, I believe I heard an Ovenbird singing in the forest today, but I would like to know what other birds could sound similar.  I couldn't find the bird singing today, so I'm hesitant to say for sure that it was an Ovenbird without hearing other birds that could sound similar. Thanks for any help.

      I have the same question! I found this article is really helpful: https://www.audubon.org/news/10-common-bird-songs-made-less-confusing

      Yes Frankie,   Some of the apps have that feature. iBirdPro will list similarly sounding birds for some but not all species on the app. This is a premium app. I bought that app 11 years ago for $19.99 but not sure what the latest version costs. It is not made by Cornell Lab of Ornithology. I checked and it doesn't list a similar sounding bird for Ovenbird. However I will tell you that one bird that can be confused with Ovenbird is a Carolina Wren. Ovenbird crescendos getting louder and louder with each note.
