There have been times I wish I could have had bord sounds handy, so I would know which bird I was looking for in the underbrush.
Bird watching with an iPod
Here's an interesting use of PDAs + iPods to become a better bird watcher... Makes sense if you can quickly cycle through a ton of photos and songs when you're out in the field...Birdwatchers have long headed into the woods with little more equipment than binoculars and a notebook. But when Laura Erickson sets out on a birding trip, she now brings along two digital cameras, a Palm device with a bird-species database and an iPod loaded with bird songs.
