“Now every birder can have the equivalent of a rare bird alert and comprehensive field guide wrapped into a single mobile app.” - Gary Langham, vice president and chief scientist for Audubon

AppPicker (“Best of” Lists, Jan 2013): “Audubon Birds…largely regarded as the best bird watching app…”
“All I can say is WOW and double WOW! I have had Audubon Birds for a couple of years and have seen it grow into the BEST bird app for iOS! ...I am just blown away with all the new additions. My favorite is showing all the birds in a group (thumbnails) and when tapped lightly the name shows up. What a way to learn new birds. I just cannot express how much I love the update. Thank you…” - E Uhls

Nice but frustrating
A good app with gobs of useful information. However, the location search is ridiculous. I'm posting a number of sightings from vacation (had limited cell service then). Each time I must move the pin from my home to a rather random island off the coast of Maine in order to get the choice to show up. Even though I made it one of my locations, I have to do this for every single bird. This is exhausting. I'd rather just type the location and have it show up each time.
Would give 5 stars if...
The app didn't crash so often. I recently downloaded this app with expectation as it's coming from a large, well known organization; however, it's quite disappointing when I'm trying to share my sightings and the app immediately crashes and shuts down after every post. Other than that, there's great information on here and many other aspects that are really great - but it can't be a great, helpful and useful app if it's always crashing. Please fix!
Great app for the casual birder. Keeps life lists and is easy and intuitive to use. Plus a great community feature so if you are not sure what you are looking at post a photo and within minutes someone helps you out.
