The app as downloaded this morning contains 110 species, each with a single 
pre-recorded 'call', some with an additional 'song'.  It says it can recognise 
25 calls, including nine introduced spp (probably lifted from their UK app). 
Haven't tried it in the field yet - only a dozen or so of the 25 occur locally.
It shows promise - hopefully there will be future upgrades adding more birds. 
Worth supporting.
