Not a birder, but a bird lover!
I live in the boonies in the PNW, having grown up in So. Cal. I have SO many birds passing through my yard - from owls and bald eagles to little yellow finch-like things that flit so fast that I haven't been able to see more than a blur of yellow! Someday, I'll see enough to narrow down my search, and I know this app will help me identify it. I've identified one frequent visitor by its morning-song!
The perfect app for anyone who looks at the world with a "what's that?" on their lips!

This app has it all. You can look at photos others have taken, you can upload your own, you can hear all the calls, and you can read a lot of information about each breed. You can view migration patterns also.
Fun for kids
Our almost two year old twin grandkids love to find new birds and find the birds they know from the park. They beg to hear the different sounds and songs of the birds, the colors, different beaks, etc...fun and educational for me too. I hope they will remember some birds and bird calls.
