The first raptor identification app designed for mobile devices; "HawkWatch International's Identification Guide to Raptors" puts expert hawk identification content in the palm of your hand. In this guide to North America's 34 species of diurnal raptors, you'll find nearly 1000 annotated photos, and cutting edge identification video for each species, geared toward helping you identify raptors in flight. If you're just getting started with birding, this app covers the basics; if you're already an expert hawk watcher, this app covers all the variation that can lead to identification confusion, even among the most seasoned birders.

The best raptor app
There is no equal in the amount of data that is available. Pretty awesome resource with excellent images that provide comparisons with confusion species.
I would like easier ways to compare two photos next to each other.
Best raptor reference
Is it worth the price? Yes. The content is so good that originally wanted to give it a five star review, but it was not all intuitive. Much has been improved now however, and I really recommend it highly.
Although there are many bird ID apps on the market, this is my go-to for raptors. It's absolutely beautifully done and the video tools is really helpful. I'd definitely recommend it.
