Ratings and Reviews
A great resource for identifying target species
Yes, a great resource for identifying target species when one visits a new area. Tho the eBird app is more appropriate for submitting data and maintaining one's own bird lists.
Great for finding new birds
This is a great app for easily finding new birds as so many people contribute to eBird which supplies this information. What a great idea for an app. My only concern is if it provides too much information on rare and vulnerable species to collectors or wildlife smugglers causing suffering to those species.
Can it get better?
Every time I use this app I am astounded by its utility and how it helps my birding. A truly excellent app! I am currently in a new location and have been helped not only to find birds and birding hotspots, but also the directions how to get there.
