Ratings and Reviews

Not that great

Colorless in Colorado

Not that great. It lists the first 6 stops, but it just gives location. I haven't found where it might possibly the types of birds you might encounter at each stop, or anything about the location at all. I am using the free version, but I'm not seeing anything on this version that would cause me to want to pay just to get a list of places to go, that part I can figure out in my own.

Search by birds


What a great app. I really like that you can search by bird species as well as location to find the top birding spots. Where do I go to see a yellow headed black bird, or indigo bunting? Couldn’t be easier to use. The link to online bird guide is a plus.

I saw more birds in four days in Washington state than I did in six months in Washington, DC


This app is great. When I first started planning my four-day birding trip to Washington I was at a loss as to where to go. While the nearly 400 stops listed in this app can be overwhelming, the seasonal suggestions and species lists really helped me narrow it down. Over the course of four days I stopped at close to a dozen different stops that I found through the app. The app gives information on driving directions, the best trails/routes, the best time of year to visit, and what you can expect to see, all of which I found to be extremely helpful. I also loved the find stops near me option -- this was useful when I wanted to find another stop near somewhere I had just been birding, but also helped me find places like Rainbow Falls State Park when I just had to get off the highway and get in a little more birding before dark.

At the end of my four days I had seen 107 different bird species, 33 of which were life birds for this relatively novice birder. That's more than I saw in the first half of 2013 in my home "state" of Washington, DC, where I bird at least a few times a week and nearly every day of spring migration. Overall, if you live in or will be traveling to Washington I highly recomend this app.
