Birds of the Netherlands: A Field Guide from iSpiny
By Spiny Software Ltd
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Written and designed by experts, this is a guide to 275 birds with songs and calls provided by top sound recordists, text specially written by biologist Dr Hilary Lind, and carefully selected photos showing a variety of plumages. You can add your own photos to the app to compliment the images provided and to really make the app your own. In addition to the 275 birds featured, the app also recognises the names of over 700 species and subspecies, so that you can record sightings of these birds.
We have over 12 years experience of developing nature programs and this has enabled us to create a guide designed to identify birds as quickly as possible. The app selects the birds for the area where you live, identifies mystery birds, records your sightings, includes multiple images and key features, plus includes a built-in simple-to-use email backup and an export facility.
