“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

What's New in Version 3.9
Performance improvements, smaller app footprint, and minor bug fixes.
Best way to learn the birds in your yard
This is a great way to learn what bird you are looking at. An example is: An Immature cardinal looks different than a mature one. This is true for most all species of birds. This app will help you learn immature and mature differences. Male and female characteristics vary too. This wonderful app even teaches you how to tell which you are seeing. So much more is included. It's fun to use. I have been able to identify every bird I've wanted to study. What a great way to enhance the beauty God put in the birds by knowing what your looking at.
A great way to learn about birds. The photos & song samples really add to the experience. Also makes it easy to post your own sightings and to see what birds have been sighted in your area. Well worth the price and highly recommended.
WARNING: NOT A FIELD GUIDE
I find that this app cannot be used without an Internet connection. When I first bought it tried to force you to connect to a web site (I presume to steal your personal data), but one could still use it as a field manual. Recently it updated itself so that it downloads its data. It might be usable in a large city with a very high-capacity cellular network. Buy the Sibley guide instead - it is much better designed and faster to use.
