Yes. You should definitely compare to Audubon’s site. I found Portland’s to be pretty accurate; but Tualatin River NWR to be off about ~10-20 yds; Forest Grove to be off about ~40 yards; and Tillamook to be off ~30 yds.

It uses the National Audubon Society’s CBC database which has 2,883 count circles. The app was last updated December 2018. You can also create your own count circle using the app.

I am not endorsing the app nor am I trying to sell you on it and every other caveat along those lines. Just putting it out there as an option. I use it on an iOS system so I don’t know about androids.
