Not 'less good' - 'no better' at identifying unidentified objects. Nor will they, because it's not something you can train to become an expert in. You can train to become better at identifying identifiable objects, for example, by looking at pictures of them, noting characteristics, and testing to see how well you perform in identifying them. But despite the Discovery Channel style's routine appeals to authority in these cases, the most authoritative thing anyone can ever say about an unidentified phenomenon is that it is not something readily identifiable, i.e. something that basically anyone could do.
