iBird 7 Lite is a free app from Mitch Waite Group, the creators of iBird Pro, the most popular birding app in the world. iBird 7 Lite is a way to review our high-end app iBird Ultimate without spending any money. Designed to meet the needs of advanced birders as well as beginners, the iBird Lite Ultimate app covers birds of North America including Canada. The fully paid version of iBird also includes species of Baja, Hawaii as well as the oceans and coasts of the northern continent.

▶ PATENTED SEARCH – iBird Lite comes with Mitch Waite Group's powerful decision engine for identifying any bird just like an expert. The search engine uses a patented algorithm that guarantees you always find your bird called Smart Attribute and Value Elimination or SAVE.

▶ BAM – The Birds Around Me feature couples range maps and GPS location to filter all the birds within a fixed radius around your exact location and avoiding birds which will never appear where you are. You can set both the radius and any of six seasons of the year. The feature requires your app be able to access maps.

▶ SYNCS – Uses the free service Dropbox to automatically syncs Favorites, Notes and Photos.

▶ 37 SEARCH ATTRIBUTES – search by color, shape, song, location, head and body patterns, flight style and much more. Includes tutorials on how to use the search and definitions of every attribute.

▶ AUDIO SONGS AND CALLS – iBird Lite comes with a new library of recordings of bird calls and songs.

▶ UNIQUE SPECTROGRAPHIC DISPLAY brings insight to the structure of bird songs by allowing you to view the sound's frequency components.

▶ PHOTO CENTER - Photo Center is a gallery for storing and assigning your photos to specific species pages in iBird. It also allows you to share photos via Facebook and Twitter, or email them to friends.

▶ SLIDESHOW- Slideshow displays photos and illustrations with accompanying songs, has settings to control specific families of birds, artists, photographers and much more. Use the results of any search or your favorites for the source input for the Slideshow.


▶ ABA’s BIRDING MAGAZINE Quest for a Bird ID Key by Diane Doyle, comparing birds apps: “[iBird] includes the most observationally-detailed attributes, with additional fine-grained traits such as eye or cere color and head, breast, belly, or back patterns. The Waite key has other extras that set it apart.”

▶ MACWORLD'S "BEST REFERENCE APP 2009: 4 ½ out of 5 mice."




As a standalone iPhone app, iBird Lite does not require an Internet connection for access to the information in its database.

Missing lots of birds

Three bird species I can see in my yard this moment, none of them are in the guide. Not very useful.
