The Audubon Bird Guide is a free and complete field guide to over 800 species of North American birds, right in your pocket. Built for all experience levels, it will help you identify the birds around you, keep track of the birds you’ve seen, and get outside to find new birds near you.
With over 2 million downloads to date, it is one of the best and most trusted field guides for North American birds.
ALL-NEW: BIRD ID
It's now easier than ever to identify a bird you just saw. Enter all you were able to observe—what color was it? How big? What did its tail look like?—and Bird ID will narrow down a list of possible matches for your location and date in real time.
LEARN ABOUT THE BIRDS YOU LOVE
Our field guide features over 3,000 photos, over eight hours of audio clips of songs and calls, multi-season range maps, and in-depth text by leading North American bird expert Kenn Kaufman.
KEEP TRACK OF ALL THE BIRDS YOU SEE
With our completely redesigned Sightings feature, you can keep a record of every bird you encounter, whether you're hiking, sitting on the porch, or simply catching a glimpse of birds out the window. We'll even keep an updated life list for you.
EXPLORE THE BIRDS AROUND YOU
See where the birds are with nearby birding hotspots and real-time sightings from eBird.
Post your photos to the Photo Feed so other Audubon Bird Guide users can see your best bird shots.

FOR OUR EXISTING USERS:
Once you log in with your NatureShare account, your sightings and photos will migrate with you into the new app. If something doesn’t look right, don’t worry—all of your data is untouched, safe, and secure.
While we work on migrating all of our users’ data to the new app, we have temporarily disabled some of the app’s community features. In the next few updates, we’ll be restoring and adding new features that make it easy and fun to share and view the photos taken by other Audubon Bird Guide users around the country. Stay tuned!

Ratings and Reviews
My go-to for all things Birds
Fantastic! It helps me identify new birds easily. I love this app. You probably do too if you are a birder!
I have the book, The National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Birds, which is also awesome.
~Grab your binoculars and watch some birds~
Best Bird App
This is the best app I have found. It is well-designed, straight forward, and uncluttered with cute information for kids or teachers etc.
I hate this update!
Please give us back the old picture and old app! I hardly ever pay for apps, and this is my first review. I will pay $2-4, just to get my old app back. Please, please, please, make some extra bucks on those of us that don’t like this new app...
