Chirp! Bird Songs & Calls of Britain and Europe +

By iSpiny

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Chirp! The original app for identifying and learning bird songs - and still the best! With many more British birds than any other birdsong ID app, and with special features such as a ‘human translation’, to tell you what the bird is actually saying.

Looking for automatic bird song identification? You need the companion app, Chirpomatic!

"Great app... Everyone loves it... Can I request a Bittern?" - Simon Mayo, top BBC radio presenter
"Equal parts wildlife guide and feel-good pick-me-up" - The Guardian, "Top 10 Green Apps"
"Identifying a bird by its song is fun and satisfyling and this app is a great help" - The Telegraph, 500 Must-Have Apps 2014 and 2015
"Best for Birdwatchers" - Daily Mail, "12 Brilliant Applications"

Chosen by Apple for "Apps for the Great Outdoors"

The app features songs and calls from the well-known sounds of the Tawny Owl and Cuckoo to the rare call of the Bittern. Each recording is up to 40 seconds long, and alternative recordings are included for birds with varied voices. If there's a sound missing that you would like us to include, just let us know and we will do our best to add it in.

Identifying and learning bird songs can be hard, but not with Chirp!. A short description and helpful tips are given for each song or call, as well as a photo of each bird. For many of the sounds, a ‘human translation’ is given, to show what the bird is communicating with the sound.

After listening, try the quiz to test your memory. Answer fast to earn a score multiplier and get on the high score table. Experienced birders can use the custom quiz to help distinguish and learn similar songs. The slideshow section can be used as a way to relax, or switch the voiceover on and see if you can say the name of the bird before the voiceover. This is a good way of competing with the family - who can say the name of the bird first?!

The app provides a variety of ways of sorting the sounds. You can arrange the list in order of commonness, so you can listen to the most common ones first, then move on to rarer species. Or sort by song style, so that you can compare birds that hoot and coo, or those with high pitched songs for example. You can also sort by habitat or by bird group.

Includes birds from Britain, Ireland, France, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Spain, Portugal and Italy. Choose to see bird names in many European languages including English, French, German, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish and Spanish.
