We created an easy to use app that gives you all the beautiful bird calls, photos, range, and identification info you expect, and also makes you look at birds in a way that will develop your identification skills. Wild About Birds! has a game that lets you find the identifying features by looking at the birds' visual details.

Plus, we have fun facts about each bird and a great way to keep track of the birds you've seen with an interactive scrapbook. Wild About Birds! is a great way to get started birding and to involve the whole family.

So much fun!!!
I love how practical and fun this app is! I'm not a bird expert, but I've had so much fun listening to the sounds, finding out the distinguishing features, and learning something new about birds I see every day. The picture quality is excellent, and there are easy ways to learn how to know what to look for to identify each bird. This has really helped me figure out which birds are at my feeders. It has been especially fun to share with my niece and nephew. They love playing the game to find the different distinguishing features each bird has. They've also been adding the birds they see to the scrapbook in the app and once they started looking for birds, they realized how many there were near us. Now I cant get my iPhone back! It's perfect for kids and for people like me who are novice birders. The layout is simple and straightforward and the information is interesting and clear. I can't recommend it enough!
Bird Identification Tool Is Perfect For Kids
It's one thing to look at a picture of a bird to see if it matches the one you see in a tree, but it's a much better experience if you can look at the parts of the bird that help distinguish it from other types of birds. With this app, it's easy to make learning about birds more engaging for kids because of this identify feature. The photo quality of the birds and the sound quality are also excellent. The bird images pop on the screen. I also appreciate the separate "where" feature in the identify section that allows you to double check if the bird you're looking at is the one you think it is. Overall a great app for beginning birders!
Stay away from this - missing sounds
The web site showed this would have a lot more sounds than what was delivered. The specific sound I was trying to get can't be found. This is a ripoff - save your money and get something else.
