eBird Mobile makes it easy to record the birds you see in the field, and seamlessly link these observations with eBird--a global online database of bird records used by hundreds of thousands of birders around the world. This free resource makes it easy to keep track of what you see, while making your data openly available for scientific research, education, and conservation. eBird Mobile is the only app that passes information directly from the iOS device to your eBird account on the web.

This App Makes Birding Easy
I've created a birding folder on my iPhone and placed eBird and Merlin in it. When I go birding they are my constant companions. eBird app makes it easy to create and enter data into a checklist. It lets you pick from a local birding spot you've used before, pick one designated as a hotspot, or create a personal location where you stand or from a map. You can view your previous checklists. The app is a mobile accompaniment and isn't intended to do everything the eBird website does. It's a great tool for the hobbyist. One feature I'd like: information on distance and direction from my current location when I'm choosing a hotspot or personal location to begin a checklist. I also wouldn't mind adopting someone else's personal location on the fly.
Amazing app keeps getting better
An incredible value. Not a field guide per se, though it does have great pics, a decent audio library, and excellent range maps. And I'm floored they keep adding new areas. Costa Rica can't be far, can it?
