Bird Song
Another fantastic voice app
for Alexa
from Thomptronics

Bird Song is a serene and entertaining voice app that plays hundreds of different bird songs and calls. You can ask for a specific bird ("Alexa, ask Bird Song for a melodious blackbird"), a general bird ("Alexa, ask Bird Song for a blackbird"), or have Bird Song select a random bird for you ("Alexa, ask Bird Song for a random bird").

For even more fun, ask Bird Song for a game to see how good you are at identifying birds by their voice alone.  Just say, "Alexa, ask Bird Song for a game."

Bird Song is frequently updated with new songs and features.  To see a complete list of songs found in this skill, visit the Bird List page.

Can Birds Tell Time?

May 24, 2019 - Bird Song is not just a skill, it's a clock now too!

Keep track of the time, hear beautiful bird songs, and drive your cats crazy by enabling our Audible Clock skill and asking for a Bird Song clock (U.S. and U.K. territories only, for now).  At the top of each hour, Alexa announces the time and then introduces a new bird song selected from the extensive library.  It’s calming, entertaining, and educational.

Bird Song Shout Out

New! On-the-Fly Bird Identification

August 8, 2018 - Using Bird Song to stream bird sounds ("Alexa, ask Bird Song for a song stream") is incredibly popular.  Now, it's even more entertaining.  If you have an Alexa device with a screen, such as an Echo Show or Spot, the name of the bird appears on the screen as it sings out.  This is a great way to learn to identify birds by their song.

We're proud to be the first -- and only -- streaming skill to provide on-the-fly (get it?) bird identification like this.  Enjoy!

Bird Song Stream

January 16, 2018 - Due to popular demand, we've recently added a new "song stream" feature that plays a continuous stream of bird songs on Alexa devices.  Just say, "Alexa, ask Bird Song for a song stream."  Bird Song will then play one bird song after another until you say "Alexa, stop."
