CONCORD, NH (PRWEB) August 31, 2005 -
Â Duncraft, the largest birdfeeding cataloger in the nation, is pleased to present this effective search engine for identifying North American birds. Mitchell Waite, the developer of the Ultimate Online Bird Guide, designed this Âintelligent' tool to be a systematic, step-by-step approach for bird identification. How is this identification search different? Mitchell explains, ÂThe most popular search engine on the net scans the web and gives you back links to sites that may or may not be relevant to the text you entered. With the Online Bird Guide at http://www.duncraft.com you don't type any text, and it doesnÂt search the web, rather you click on icons and it scans its built-in database.Â
Waite continues, ÂYou select just one characteristic of the bird at a time--and that makes all the difference! For example, letÂs say you begin your selections with ÂlocationÂ. You are presented with all the states, provinces, coasts and islands in North America. You select the ÂlocationÂ where you saw the bird, say California, and then the search engine presents you with a list of all the birds that are in California. We call these results ÂmatchesÂ. Now, continue to narrow down your matches and select a second attribute, letÂs say ÂsizeÂ. As you go through this process, defining key attributes of your mystery bird, the number of ÂmatchesÂ is reduced until you get your answer. Other online engines require you to enter all the ID information and attributes upfront--and at the same time. Your result is either Âzero matchesÂ or far too many matches to sift through.Â
Is it still necessary for the user to do a lot of clicking with this search engine? ÂNot really,Â says Mitchell. ÂAlmost any bird can be identified with just a few clicks--especially if youÂve been observant and noticed a distinguishing feature. There are over 50 different attributes in the bird database that you can search on, and there are over 700 different birds. Finding a bird usually takes a few minutes at most.Â
