Customer Reviews

Basic download is a great resource.

The initial download of this app is great. Easy to navigate and had a few filters to change the search period. The species in the app can be mapped to determine what is around you and how long ago. The information is compiled from the Ebird app. Frequency of the a species presence is depicted as a dot on a map, the more the dots in a small area, the more likely the species can be said with certainty to be found there.
The drawback - the species listed are somewhat basic. Starting out in nursing? This app will be very helpful to you to start you LifeList and get interested in birding. If you want to add more species to your existing app download, it's gonna cost you. Every month too. A single charge for an expansion of species is fine with me, but 3 or 4 dollars every month? No thanks.
I suggest downloading this app as it is very helpful. Hopefully the expansion charge is something the developers change.

Birds Eye

I use this app constantly. It's great to be able to look nearby, or at a specific hotspot, to see what species have been spotted by others. I generally set my app to pull species seen in the last two weeks, near where I am. In the field, I live being able to take a quick look at the pictures of males, females, juvies, regular and alternate plumage, etc, etc. As a new birder, this is a big help. I can easily rotate between Birds Eye and Ebird to prepare my sighting reports right in the field. Then I can look up any species I couldn't ID, at home, in one or more field guides. My routine will probably change as I gain experience, but I'm happy with it now, and it definitely depends on Birds Eye.

BirdsEye works fantastically!

Newest successful experience with this profoundly useful and elegant app: I was attending a meeting at the Jackson Lake Lodge in Jackson Hole, Wyoming (someone had to go!). As I always do on such trips, I looked to see if there were any nearby opportunities to see new birds. I hadn't been to Wyoming for decades, so there were several, and at one site only 29 minutes away by car someone had reported a Great Grey Owl to eBird just 5 days before. After the meetings were over I went to the location, Upper Turpin Meadows, and while I didn't find an owl my first visit, in the afternoon, I did find one the next morning. Life Bird. Thank you BirdsEye!
