MightyPods today announced the release of its birdPod Maker software for the iPod, initially for Mac OS X only. BirdPod Maker uses iTunes to organize an extensive collection of bird songs for use on the iPod, optimizing the bird song collection for bird identification in the field and for simplified learning of bird songs. Additional gadgets and advice for effectively using an iPod when bird watching can be found on the birdPod Web site. BirdPod uses the Stokes Field Guide to Bird Songs, Eastern Region, for its bird song collection. The Stokes Guide is also available on the birdPod Web site.
