Customer Reviews

Thanks for the update!

With the update for iPhone 5, this is probably the best overall bird reference. The drawings from Peterson are better than photos for identification, and the textual information is more organized and standardized than other apps. The only way it could be improved would be to have more than one vocalization per bird.

Wonderful Features

I am enjoying the guide tremendously, I use it all the time. I especially like the features that allow me to download site checklists for local hotspots from the Peterson Guide website, and to add my own photos to each species' page.

Please make it possible to add Ruddy Duck to the life list. I saw one today!

I am learning so much...I love this app.

I recently moved to a new environment rich with wildlife. I have learned so much from this app and find it quite exciting to identify an owl or a migrating duck with certainty by complementing what I see with what I hear. I downloaded several bird ID apps and compared them. The Peterson Birds was the best in my opinion.
