    Thank you, Sarah and Amanda, for a fun discussion. I enjoyed learning that none of the reviews here are assigned as I’d wondered about that.

  2. Felis C says:

    The Merlin bird app is pretty decent. We started using it a few years ago and had success identifying birds all over the U.S., Mexico, Europe, etc.

  3. Crystal says:

    I…I might need to play Dredge.

  4. Vesta says:

    A board gamer friend told me (re: Wingspan) that the art “inspired a player to make an app that had the sounds of all the various bird calls so that you could hear them, or you could play them while playing the game”

    You just scan the cards and hear the song.

    It’s called “Wingsong” and it’s in both Google and Apple stores.
