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…”

2011 APPY Award Finalist

“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

Customer Reviews

Unusable. Can’t access my account.

I downloaded this app and set up a new account, and used it for a few minutes before being logged out unexpectedly. Repeated attempts to log back in again failed: The password was “incorrect.” I tried to set up a new account but failed because my email address was already linked to the first account. I contacted Audubon and received no response for days. Finally I was given a new password, used it for a couple of days, and then was logged out again, and told the password (yes, the one supplied by Audubon) was “incorrect.” Giving up on this app, it’s unreliable to the point of being unusable. I had spent some time creating my life list in the app, now unaccessible to me, so a wasted effort. Shame, seemed like a useful app if only I could access it for more than a few minutes at a time.

Unusable. Can't access my account.

I downloaded this app, set up an account, and began using it. After about five minutes I was unexpectedly logged out. When I tried to log in again, I was told my password was incorrect. I tried to set up a new account again, but couldn't because the one I had already created was linked to my email address. I contacted Audubon and after several days was given a new password. This let me use the app for about 2 days, and then it happened again: I was logged out unexpectedly, and when I tried to log back in, the password (yes, the one supplied by Audubon) was "incorrect." That's when I gave up. Going to look for a birding app that's reliable.

Great app

After years of using guidebooks in print, this app is really a revelation. The habitat info, the descriptions, and the bird songs are equal to, or better than, any guide I have ever carried. The photos are of very high quality, and offer a number of useful views. Though the best illustrated guides offer superior field identification help, and visually emphasize significant features in a way that photographs do not, this is a well crafted, very useful, fun app to use. And it is great having it available on my phone.
