iBird Pro Guide to Birds iOS App Details

iBird™ Pro, considered by experts to be the world’s best app for identifying birds of North America, takes a major leap forward with “Time of Day” filtering available in version 10.04. You can now search for birds by activity levels during day or night (Cathemeral), dawn and dusk (Crepuscular), during the day (Diurnal) or during the night (Nocturnal). iBird Pro is the only app that offers Birds Around Me (BAM)—showing just those species in your GPS location. It also features our patented Percevia™ smart search, which helps you identify birds just like the birding experts. iBird developers never sleep. Version 10.04 adds a unique collection of audio recordings for Owls as well as 16 new composite illustrations for the Black-faced Grassquit, Botteri's Sparrow, Cinnamon Hummingbird, Costa's Hummingbird, King Rail, Kirtland's Warbler, Limpkin and the Louisiana Waterthrush. Plus, we restored the Dropbox to iCloud migration feature. More Details of What’s New: bit.ly/ibird-whatsnew iBird Pro contains 944 species of North American birds, including both common and rare species. It is designed to help both experienced and novice birders identify and learn about their birds. Unlike other iPhone apps, iBird includes most of the popular birds of the Hawaiian Islands and is completely up to date with the 2016 AOU and ABA checklists. With iBird Pro’s Percevia™ matching system you can search for birds by color, location, shape, habitat or any one of 35 identification attributes to find your bird. iBird's comprehensive species pages have 3,300 built-in bird song recordings, 4,500 professional high resolution bird photographs, 1,750 hand-drawn composite illustrations and over 1,000 range maps. Version 10.04 of iBird Pro Guide to Birds now includes iCloud for backing up and sharing your own photos, notes and favorites among all your devices. From tiny to angry birds, iBird works like magic, revealing a list of birds that perfectly matches your search choices. With over 1 million downloads iBird is the standard that all birding apps are measured by. Features ■ Identify 944 species with in-depth descriptions including details on appearance, habitat, behavior, conservation, size, weight, color, pattern, shape, sexual differences and much more. ■ Birds Around Me and Percevia™ smart search now available as in-app purchases with free 7 day trials. ■ Splits-History lets you see what birds have had name changes, have been split into more than one species or lumped into one species. ■ iBird’s icon-driven visual search engine enables you to identify birds using shape, color, location, habitat, head pattern, flight pattern, bill shape, length and more. ■ Extensive identification paragraphs and hard-to-find details such as diet, nest information, egg color, sex of incubator, vocalization definitions, and more. ■ The only birding app that includes both Illustrations and Photos. ■ Sort birds by first, last and family name and view birds by text, icon, thumbnail or gallery. ■ Search by common name, Latin name and even band code. ■ Comprehensive range maps which include migratory routes as well as subspecies maps for 40 species. ■ Only app with a field mark layer which displays key ID marks for male, female and juvenile birds. ■ Post, keep lists, and share sightings with friends and followers with an easy and user-friendly Notes and Favorites interface. ■ iBird’s database is completely self-contained; no internet connection is required like many other birding apps. Other Features ■ The Conservation Status search attribute lets you filter birds by 6 threat levels including Least Concern, Near Threatened, Vulnerable, Endangered, Critically Endangered and Extinct in the Wild. The standard is maintained by Birdlife International and is called the IUCN Red List. ■ All screens optimized for tablets - illustrations, photos and range maps fill the screen. ■ Species, common and family names in English, French and Spanish (text is English).

  • Love it!

    By Dharmamom
    Great app for beginning birder. Love the Birds Around Me feature & the bird song player. Interfaces nicely with the Bird Journal app. So fun to finally know the names of the birds in my yard.
  • Know before you buy

    By ThruHim
    I've had this app less than 24 hours and although it is a good app for identification of birds by sight or sound I was very disappointed to discover some of the features require an additional purchase. For the price I paid the app should identify birds in my location but it doesn't...that's an add on $ feature. UPDATED COMMENT...Developer's comments supports my review.

  • iBird Pro 5

    By Timbo4962
    I enjoy this improved application considerably! Each bird is covered in depth and even more so in birdpedia! I believe it is the top birding app available.

  • Incredi-bird

    By naturefaith
    The best birding app hands down. So many features but the 4,000 songs are what I love the most.
  • Missing bird calls

    By Insect lover
    I sure do miss some of my favorite parts of the bird calls and songs. There was one for the American Crow that sounded like waa-Huu. There was one for American Goldfinch fledglings that sounded like Chipeee. Even some of the Eastern Towee calls I loved are missing.
