iBird Pro Guide to Birds App Description

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 10.05. 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 10.05 adds a unique collection of audio recordings for Owls as well as 7 new composite illustrations for the Aztec Thrush, Eastern Bluebird, Kittlitz’s Murrelet, Leach’s Storm Petrel, Least Storm Petrel, White-throated Sparrow and Yellow-eyed Junco. To see the latest drawings, go to Illustration Update on the Search menu. Also includes our new Owls of Mexico and Central America package, including illustrations with field marks, range maps, songs and calls and much more. 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 10.05 of iBird Pro Guide to Birds now includes iCloud for backing up and sharing your own photos, notes and favorites among all your devices. 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 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).

App Reviews

  • Wonderful App, fine support

    By lulupri
    I’ve used this App for a number of years — on my iPad and on a smartphone. It’s my go-to reference about birds. When I had a question about an update, I received a prompt and helpful reply from staff.
  • Great app

    By birder- snorkeler
    Love this app especially for the calls. So many times I want to verify a call I just heard and I can go right to the call to compare.

    Great app!
  • Perfect

    By Schreibermeister
    Exactly what a birding aficionado needs.
  • Excellent App

    By LaneUCD
    Always improving. There is so much useful information in one place. Love it. I also love the journal- can record the exact coordinates of sightings and then add it to websites later. It is great!
  • Download a nightmare

    By Uddhava1
    Over an hour to download and 5 retries later I painfully completed this download. I have downloaded navigation apps with large maps but this is the worst! 1 minute into the app and they try to get me to update and pay for upgrades! Huge mistake!
  • Poor Update

    By KaylanJane
    I had been using this app for years and loved it. The recent update took away many of the features I was able to use with the version I purchased. Some of us should have been grandfathered in to new updates. I will not pay again. **** I never had problems with the month feature and the feature you added is not available unless I purchase the app again. So no excuse.
  • Great reference

    By Queueman
    This is a great resource for bird identification and also for learning about different bird species. Very comprehensive.
  • Easy to use

    By GR8DRK8
    I'm a beginning birder and this app is easy to use in the field or just around the house to learn about birds. The bird calls are great as are the multiple illustrations and descriptions of behavior and habitat. And it's lighter than a book to carry.
  • Mitch Waite IBird App Limited

    Those folks who possess an IPod operating system less than the the 10.1 requirements stipulated by by the IBird pro lose all ability to access the app info. Terrible! Bought the app to use, paid money and now with Apple/IBird taking an Apple 5th version with 9.1.3 are left high and dry....no usage at all. Either Apple or the Mitch group needs to resolve this to let users back accessing IBird Pro
