I am about a month into my first backyard bird feeder, San Francisco. Combining search descriptions I’d figured out the main 2 or 3 I see, but this is VERY easy to use with Range, behavior, etc to check my guesses.

Very easy to use, informative and fun

I enjoy using this app, a lot of thought went into it. It's intuitive, easy to use and I learn a lot from it. Good job guys!

Good features

Like this app to identify birds based on physical shape, family and name. It will be better if the app can identify by capturing a bird's sound, and I will give five stars for the feature.
