Now on Sale!!!
The most popular printed field guide to North American birds is now available in its entirety on the iPhone and iPad!
**If you would like to experience the app check out the newly released Sibley eGuide to the Birds of North America LITE which is FREE and includes 30 species.**
We have taken the simplicity and ease-of-use that you have enjoyed on your iPhone/iPod Touch and expanded and redesigned the layout (not simply “stretching” it) to take full advantage of the larger screen area of the iPad while still being the same app that runs on the iPhone/iPod Touch.
The Sibley Guide to Birds has become the most popular and fastest selling printed guide to birds as well as the most comprehensive and authoritative guide to North American Birds:
Over 6600 images.
Every species is shown perched and in flight from above and below.
Shows every major seasonal, age, and male/female variation.
Detailed coverage of subspecies and regional variations.
Detailed maps showing not just winter and summer range but also migration and rare occurrence.
Detailed descriptions of songs and calls, comparing similar species measurements of length, wingspan, and weight for every species.
Now all of that information is available in an easy-to-navigate portable format on the iPhone/iPad. In addition, this version of the app also includes:
● Swipe to move to the next or previous species.
● One-tap enlargement of images and rotating the device expands images further.
● Over 2300 carefully-selected and edited sound recordings. Nearly all species are represented with multiple examples showing the range of vocalizations.
● The ability to compare any two images, maps, or sounds, side by side on the screen.
● The ability to filter by state/province, so that you see only the species likely to occur in your location, and to further reduce the possibilities to the most common birds in that area.
● The ability to search by distinguishing features such as size, prominent colors, habits, and group.
● A basic personal species list* that stores your sightings saved to the device with the ability to export the list using email or iTunes file sharing.
*Uninstalling/reinstalling the program will result in the loss of your list, it is recommended that you keep your own backup (master list) separate from the application.
We invite all users to share their comments and ideas on our forum at www.mydigitalearth.com

Beautiful; waiting for more features
I am a hobby birder and have been "collecting" for over 50 years. My Sibley book is the only "list" I've kept for years, after transferring it from well-worn Peterson West and East volumes, and probably has 400+ in it, with locations and dates for all but the most common birds. I hope to put it all in the e-version. Your app is just as complete, authoritative and useful as the original, and I'm looking forward to using it in the field. For that, I appreciate you made it all resident on the phone/pad so it can be used without a cell signal. As you look to add more features, I hope you will find a way to translate GPS coordinates into geographic place names, retaining both in the List. Also, and more importantly, please work out a way to synchronize the Lists between devices owned by one person, making it handy to use a phone in the field, then transfer entries to a "master List" on a tablet. Your app is a great start, now I'm looking for just a bit more. Thank you. (The sync feature would be fine if it only worked over cell/wi-fi, once out of the field.)
I have been using this app on my Ipod Touch for a couple of years and find it very useful. I like to add trip birds as I go along, and previous versions showed my trip list in taxanomic order, but I could only export in the order I entered the sightings, which was a problem for my reporting what I had seen. The new version (1.9) has a new interface that I like better, but the trip list is now shown only in alphabetical order which makes it difficult to review the list to check if I have entered all of the birds seen on the trip. I see that a version 1.9.1 is out, but my Ipod Touch doen't see it as an update.
Bring back the bird count by day
The app is great but the daily count is missing. Also I think the search function should auto complete with suggestions of different birds. You should be able to type a partial name and have it pop up.
