iBird Lite Guide to Birds

By Mitch Waite Group

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


iBird Lite Free Guide to Birds, the perfect field guide app to learn to identify birds of North America or Hawaii, is now available as Version 10, our biggest update in 12 months. iBird Lite is a free 50 species demo of our advanced iBird Plus, Pro and iBird Ultimate apps which have the full 944 species found in North America. Completely up to date with the 2016 AOU and ABA checklist, iBird Lite contains all the features of the full paid apps, but not all the species. It will help you learn what a fascinating hobby birding can be.

In 2008 iBird broke new ground as it turned the iPhone into a field guide that identifies birds and plays their songs. Featured in Apple’s television commercials, it started a revolution that made iBird the most respected birding app in the world. iBird is now completely updated with new species for 2017 and includes exciting new features.

** NOTE If you are already a serious birder please check out our iBird Ultimate app which is the fully paid version of this demo. **

Whether you are an experienced birder or a beginner, iBird Lite is the most authoritative demo guide to North American Birds you’ll need.

iBird Lite Version 10 now contains these exciting features:
■ Birds Around Me (BAM) narrows the species being searched to just those found at your GPS location, within a radius and season you specify.
■ Percevia™ intelligent search is a patented algorithm that guarantees you will not pick a search attribute that doesn’t lead to narrowing the matched list of birds.
■ iBird now takes advantage of the high-resolution retina displays of the iPhone and iPad so the screen shows more information than ever.
■ Splits-History. See what birds were renamed, split into different species or lumped together for every year.

■ iBird’s icon-driven visual search engine, enables you to identify birds using shape, color, location, habitat, head pattern, flight pattern, bill shape, length and more.

■ Voluminous identification and hard-to-find details such as diet, nest information, egg color, sex of incubator, vocalization definitions, and more.

■ The only birding app that includes both Illustrations and Photos.

■ The powerful search engine means no longer scrolling through dozens of the wrong choices. iBird matches just those birds near you that fit your description.

■ Many hours of highest quality bird sound recordings.

■ Sort birds by first, last and family name and view birds by text, icon, thumbnail or gallery.

■ Search by common name, Latin name and even band code.

■ Comprehensive seasonal and migratory range maps include subspecies.

■ Only app with a field mark layer which displays key ID marks for male, female, juvenile.

■ Post, keep lists, and share sightings with friends and followers with an easy and user-friendly Notes and Favorites interface.

■ iBird’s database is completely self-contained; no internet connection is required like many other birding apps.

Other Features

■ All new range maps now include Summer, Winter, Spring and Fall ranges plus Year-round and Migration ranges.

■ New Conservation Status search attribute lets you search by the size of any species population as well as see specific species endangered status on each account. The standard is maintained by Birdlife International and is called the IUCN Red List.

■ All screens optimized for tablets - illustrations, photos and range maps fill the screen.

■ Species, common and family names in English, French and Spanish (text is English).
