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

Amazing app

iShubes

My wife and I have never been "bird watchers", but since being able to enjoy our morning coffee outside every morning, we've taken to really enjoying the busy company of our feathered friends. I downloaded this app to help identify the calls, and WOW! this app is terrific. It helps identify the multitude of calls, shapes, colors, regions, etc, and has really opened up our appreciation and knowledge. To cap it off: We were trying to confirm a Carolina Wren on our patio this morning; I opened the app and started playing the different calls of the Carolina Wren, and the next thing we knew, this little guy had braved hopping right up next to where we were sitting, trying to locate where the calls were coming from! I silenced my phone momentarily, and he flew a few feet away, but as soon as I started the calls back up, here he came again, trying to find his invisible friend! That alone is enough to merit a 5-star rating for this incredible app. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

Great app, but I wish you did the same for your other guides!

I have loved all of the Audubon apps and find them very useful. That is, the ones you still support. I love Audubon, but I am incredibly disappointed in the way you have handled the other apps including the guides on Butterflies, Fishes, Fishes of the Caribbean, Insects & Spiders, Mammals, Mushrooms, Reptiles & Amphibians, Trees, and Wildflowers. None of these apps can even be found on the app store anymore. I find it very disloyal to your customers to discontinue apps that they have purchased. If they were free, I wouldn't have a problem, but many of those apps won't even work anymore since IOS 11. Please update the apps or issue a refund to all of your customers.

Love this app!

I don't write reviews so this is my first. This app is an easy 5 Stars and I've not yet accessed all of the features. I became a backyard birder after moving to a rather remote area in the southwest desert where dove, quail and an occasional hawk were my only "winged residents" until I created a sheltered oasis, if you will. With time and patience, my yard was a flutter with song and feather. I've tried to identify my favorite bird (who I named "Follow") for years, to no avail, until I did a quick search by shape with this awesome app. "Follow," who hopped along quite close behind me as I watered my various gardens, is a sweet Desert Towhee!
