*** This is the professional app to the renowned reference work of Schulze and Dingler covering 804 European species including 2,837 songs and calls known from the 17# CD set! This app is a co-production between Sunbird Images and the German publisher Edition AMPLE. This is the best set of songs and calls for this region ever published.

The app has recently been promoted and positively reviewed by several organizations and institutions:

UK Birding and Wildlife Blog writes:

>> " …this worth it's weight in gold, everything works well and is easy to use, and you wouldn't be able to find anything this good for less."

Swarovski says:

>> "The home screen is populated with clear photographic icons representing logical groups ... making it very easy to navigate, find and access the species of interest."

Birdwatch Ireland writes:

>> "I must say that I was impressed with how fast and responsive this app is to use, with no noticeable lagging or waiting for sounds to load. Navigating between species is a breeze and, by and large, the selection of “cuts” for most species is very impressive"

>> " ...the user can quickly jump between via the simple but effective control interface."

All species can be browsed according to their taxonomical classification and can thus be easily compared. Spectrograms to all sounds as well as high quality photographs and descriptions to each species are also included. As a novelty and practical advantage, multiple songs and calls of one species are arranged consecutively on separate tracks. Some tracks consist of several calls, which can independently be chosen and played immediately without the need to fast-forward. This adds up to 2,837 bird sounds altogether! Explanations to all recordings are given, bird names are given in English, Latin and German, French, Italian, Spanish and other languages, see below.

This app offers many special features:

– 2,837 songs & calls
– includes 804 European species
– spectrograms to all sounds
– descriptions to all species
– 1,380 photographs
– 750 distribution maps (Europe)
– create your own sighting lists and sort by place, date, group, and name
– make notes for each bird spotted
– display bird names in 19 languages and select sequence:
* English, Latin, Chinese (traditional), Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Icelandic, Italian, Japanese, Japanese (romaji), Latvian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish *

Milestone in bird song apps!

Finally a compact version of the famous 17 CD collection of bird songs. Now I can take the bird song collection everywhere I go, also the search features make it more easy to find songs (you have categories, search fields everywhere, and even similar species lists for every bird). The app also has a brief description of every bird. Very nice and fresh design with spectrograms and amplitude diagrams. You can even note sightings with GPS information :-) For the same money as the original CD collection you get much more features, thus this unique song collection is worth every penny! Absolutely recommendable.

Very impressing app!

This app is amazingly comprehensive. It does not only cover all European bird species but also provides a vast amount of single bird vocalisations as well as an abundance of images. The design is appealing and handy and for an outdoor enthusiast an app is an ideal companion in the field. This app is probably going to be my most frequently used birding tool (besides binoculars).

Wonderful app!

I’ve been using the bird songs 17 cd set for many years. Now this comes as an app. More than that, the app has a sophisticated design and usability. It additionally encompasses very nice pictures, sighting tool, and maps. I’m so happy with this app. Without question it’s worth its price!
