PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – On today’s APP-tastic and outta SITE – BirdSnap.

Even the most avid of bird watchers gets stumped sometimes. The BirdSnap app can help amateur ornithologists identify bird species – and even fill you in on similiar ones (and how to tell the difference).

Just snap a picture of the bird in question (you might want to turn off the shutter sound), open the app – and it will use visual recognition technology to search its database of 500 species to tell you more.

Check out the BirdSnap app.
