Merlin and rare bird sounds

4:53 pm

Last week when I had the opportunity to hear the Hooded Warbler at Fort Rosecrans I tried to record it on my Merlin App on my cell phone, the singing notes appeared on the scrolling screen and a little blue dot appeared and said hearing bird calling but never identified it. 
    Today I used my iPad to play the Indigo Bunting call and the same thing happened.
  I have the Bird packs for the USA and South East USA.
    I tried playing the Bunting call from my phone to the Merlin App on my iPad and the same thing happens. 
        I hope to try for the Bunting later this week using the Merlin app to help me hear.
     Any  suggestions??
     Thank you
