“All I can say is WOW and double WOW! I have had Audubon Birds for a couple of years and have seen it grow into the BEST bird app for iOS! ...I am just blown away with all the new additions. My favorite is showing all the birds in a group (thumbnails) and when tapped lightly the name shows up. What a way to learn new birds. I just cannot express how much I love the update. Thank you…” - E Uhls

Customer Reviews

Wonderful app!

I downloaded this app last night then spent a couple of fascinated hours exploring it. I'm delighted with it! There are excellent pictures of a huge number of different species including adults of both genders & some juveniles, recordings of songs & some alarm calls. There are quite a few species of birds living near me so I'm hoping to develop some ability to recognize the birds I see & hear. Slightly off topic: I have a brightly colored floral patterned doormat that I recently moved from outside my back door (that has a huge glass window) to just inside that door. A few days ago I heard a thump and found that a bird, possibly a chickadee, had flown into the door. The bird lay on my deck gasping. I gently picked it up and the bird made no attempt to get away. I put it under a nearby evergreen on a bed of dry leaves & covered the body (not the head) with leaves. A couple of hours later another bird made the same mistake ☹️ & I did the same first aid. When I checked the next day both birds were gone & I have no idea if they recovered or were eaten. BTW I moved that doormat and will be careful what I put near that door in the future.

Outstanding app for birders

I'm a beginner birder, and find this app to be essential. With it, you can build your own life list and share your sightings with others, look at other people's sightings, identity birds with the bird finder, and see the ranges of various species. Your life list is maintained on the app (and corresponding website) and can be downloaded as a list in csv format. This is an excellent educational tool for a birder, the best that I have found.


This app is beyond amazing! I can't believe it is free since all the other bird guide books on the app store are super expensive. Every bird imaginable is in here along with a detailed description, photographs, examples of the bird's calls, range maps, and sightings near your location with data based on eBirds. Can't ask for a better app!
