This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
iBird Canada, considered the world’s most popular identification app to birds of Canada, takes a major leap forward with “Time of Day” filtering available in version 10.04 You can now search for birds by activity levels during day or night (Cathemeral), dawn and dusk (Crepuscular), during the day (Diurnal) or during the night (Nocturnal). iBird is the only app that offers Birds Around Me (BAM)—showing just those species in your GPS location.

What's New in Version 10.04
Fixed a crash being experienced by some users.
Time of Day Search. The new Time of Day search feature lets you filter birds by activity intervals during day or night (Cathemeral), dawn and dusk (Crepuscular), during the day (Diurnal) or during the night (Nocturnal). Time of Day Notes which provide additional information about a species behavior are found on each species from a new Time of Day menu. The Time of Day feature is particularly useful for birders who are interested in night birding and is available as an inexpensive in-app update for 99 cents. Please note that we are in the process of updating the paragraphs for each species so this first release will not be complete.
Dropbox Migration is back. As you may know before we implemented iCloud for syncing Favorites, Notes and Photos, we used Dropbox. We made the shift because Dropbox removed an essential feature we used for the backup and sync feature to work. We thought enough time had gone by that most of our customers had migrated to iCloud, but we discovered that was not the case. So, we have implemented the Dropbox migration again feature so that customers who are still using it can let iBird move their Notes and Favorites to iCloud. You will still need to reassign your photos once they have been moved to your iCloud folder.
New Sounds. New sounds were just added for 8 owl species: the Elf Owl, Flammulated Owl, Great Gray Owl, Great Horned Owl, Northern Hawk Owl, Spotted Owl, Western Screech-Owl, and Whiskered Screech-Owl. Check out the female call of a Northern Hawk Owl in flight and female alarm calls from a Spotted Owl. We are committed to adding to our extensive sound library and routinely check for new sounds that we can include. Our Western Screech-Owl is a prime example of this. While we had the song, trill and alarm calls for this species we were able to add female and begging whinny calls as well as a different type of alarm call.
