Ever have trouble ID’ing a bird?

I recently found a website via a YouTube channel that helps ID birds (North American). You enter a picture of the bird, click a few points on the bird and it compares it to it’s database. I have tried it with a few pictures and now know the pretty blue bird I took a picture of is a Grosbeak! It can take a while sometimes but it has hit the right name 4 out of 5 attempts.
