Created by the Chesapeake Bay Trust, this interactive field guide includes ALL the wild animals and plants of the Chesapeake Bay and its watershed. For novices and experts alike, the Chesapeake Bay Field Guide provides localized wildlife information about the birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians, butterflies, trees, and seashore creatures you'll find around the Bay. It's comprehensive-- all native birds and animals are included, along with photos, in-depth descriptions, audio, field marks and more. Users can also search for Endangered Species or Poisonous/Dangerous species.

Great App . . . But . . .
Worked fine with the iOS it was originally launched on. However, somewhere in between it stopped working, iOS 8 perhaps. It's "working" again in iOS 10. Some functionality is lost. You cannot choose categories from the filter. You have to either search for what you are looking for (if you know the name) or scroll through ALL the images. That's nice for browsing but not for quick identifications. This is a great app that I use with my grandchildren. Please update it soon 🙏🏾.
Good but not 5 Stars
I like this app for being able to find things quickly by geographic region. However, once you choose a geographic region, you can NOT switch to a different region by picking it from the region menu. That feature is broken. The only way to look up something in a different region is to close the app, reopen it and choose the different region. Please fix this.
I work for a nature preserve in pennsylvania and find this app to be extremely useful in the field. It's nice to find out what certain things are in a relatively short amount of time on those rare instances you run into something you haven't seen before. Nice.
