Wondering if there is an app or website that would help identify say the 50 most common birds in the province if you were to hear them in the woods?

No idea about anything with the 50 more common BUT ... Cornell has a free app called Merlin. With it you can choose to show only birds from the Northeast. It will play the the sounds of all these birds.

Sibley also has a nice one ... about $20 ... Sibley Birds of North America ... same thing as above. Can choose to show just birds by province.

These are the two I have so I don't know anything about others but I'm sure there are more.

This website lists all the birds in Canada ... choose a bird from the list and then it plays numerous sounds.

I second Jimmy's recommendations for the merlin app.  Its one of two that I use and has some great features including photo bird ID which I found very useful in Costa Rica.  I use the bird pack " US Canada and all" as includes some rarities which could show up here. You might just go for the Canada : East version.  All the common birds should be there for our region.  

Audubon is the other free app I use, its OK but I only use it for listening to the varying songs or calls of birds.  

Thanks guys!

I have a 'dvd'  of Smithsonian Field Guide to the Birds of North America.  Birdsongs of 138 species.

Over 500 tracks listing the type of calls, ie  courtship calls, flight calls etc.... a picture of each bird with the title tracks.

very useful
