The Maven B3 is, from what I read, believed to be very similar / from the same design and parts as the Kite Lynx and Nikon M7 and Opticrom Traveler. If that is the case I would be surprised if the B3...

I've now had an MHG 8x30 for about a week. My first impressions are nearly entirely positive. I won't try to give a fully technical analysis as I'm a birder not a binocular tester, so please bear...

On the final bird - To me it looks a warbler or greenlet at first glance and not an Antbird. In addition to other things mentioned above, Warbling-Antbirds have undertail patterns that this bird...

I tend to agree with Motmot that it looks like a Rufescent / Eastern Russet Antshrike. The bill and the jizz don't say Buff-fronted Foliage-Gleaner to me, despite the plumage. Worth noting that this...

Is it possible to get Aves Vox to do something like, say, download the top N tracks for every space in a country or department or the like? So you have them for offline use?

I don't see the Faansie Peacock / Chamberlain's guide to LBJs available as an app. I see it as an eBook but that's something quite different.
