What’s New

Version 1.5

Birds Near Me is back! Unfortunately a few features needed to be removed to be compatible with new the eBird API. The core functionality of the app is still working but its no longer possible to find sightings of any birds in the world. Hopefully I'll find a way to make that usable in a future version. Sorry for the delay and thanks for all the positive messages people sent in.

Playback issues

This app fulfills all my needs, with the exception of the never-loading audio files. The load wheel spins indefinitely, bird calls never actually play. 5 stars, otherwise...

So glad you’re back!

Didn’t realize how valuable this app was until a recent bird trip in other side of country without. It’s so helpful to have when in unfamiliar area.

Nice app updated

Updating my review to give it a five star. The developer recognize the issues and everything was fixed for iOS 11. Now it is fun to use

Developer Response ,

Recordings and a few other bugs caused by iOS upgrades have been fixed in the 1.1 release. Search allows you to find sightings from any bird in the world. If you want to find birds near your location use the Near Me tab and make sure you have enabled Location Services so the app can access your location.
