What People are Saying:
“Now every birder can have the equivalent of a rare bird alert and comprehensive field guide wrapped into a single mobile app.” - Gary Langham, vice president and chief scientist for Audubon
“Instead of the hefty field guides, the apps give the nature photographer a very portable and lightweight library of natural history information.” – Jim Clark, Outdoor Photographer Magazine
AppPicker (“Best of” Lists, Jan 2013): “Audubon Birds…largely regarded as the best bird watching app…”
“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

Part of it is good, but the other Audubon Guides no longer work.
This app is useful for looking up birds on the fly, but I was very disappointed in the list feature. I have an iPod and use wifi to connect to the net.
Whenever I enter a bird after I get home, it gets displayed as the date of entry, not the date of sighting, so that feature is useless for me.
I wrote this some time ago. However, since iOS 11 this is the only Audubon Guide that works out of about 6 I bought. There is no recognition of this from Audubon, and no way to contact them to find out if an update is in the works. I am really annoyed by the lack of transparency.
Problem with otherwise good app
I hope the developers read these reviews so they can address issues that affect the usefulness of this app. I would have given it five stars if all the features worked with iOS 11.0.3 on the iPhone 7. As it is, neither my husband nor I get any sound when we press “voice” while using the app on our phones. However, it does work on my iPad with the same iOS.
Please fix this!
New issue with 11.2 update. Pictures have vanished as have range maps. Please fix!
Had the paid app a long time and love it. Had to download the newer version and the new features are awesome. I just discovered what’s been seen within 30 miles in 3 weeks. We move a lot and this will supercharge my birding before I even get to town. Woohoo!
