Join us for a bird ID trivia game and learn some new bird identification tricks! The Cornell Lab’s Merlin Bird ID app is powered by machine learning. Can an app outsmart experienced birders and a live audience? Using bird photos and sounds, we’ll see who can correctly identify the most species. The game involves audience participation, so come ready to play! During the game, we’ll learn how Merlin “decides” on an ID, and panelists will share their tips for sleuthing out tricky birds by sight and sound.
