Well, looks like my team won't need this website for studying birds anymore. So I used this to study for ornithology and got 2nd in my states. Pretty useful site, but you must type the name exactly the way it is on the national list to get it correct. Tell me if I should add this to the wiki or something or what to improve. It has the list of birds from last year, not updated. However, most are the same.

I have a 195 slide powerpoint ID practice which I will upload to the test exchange when PA states are over. It's on a 20 second rotation and contains all the birds, and 10 repeats.

I tried making one of those once, but I'm sure yours is better. Thanks so much!

This is really cool. Did you program it?

Actually the programming comes from my brother. However, it shouldn't be too hard to code one if you know how. You can view the source code (ctrl + U) to figure out some tricks he did. It basically takes good (480p or higher) pictures from google images and shows them. It chooses randomly from the top 10 so that when you click new picture, you can see a different view or if the picture is bad, you can change it. I had to manually add the names but that is expected.
