I purchased this app to help me with identifying birds on my upcoming trip to the Tuscany region of Italy. When I tried to use the app I ounces the sketches to be disappointedly inadequate. There's not enough detail to properly identify the nuances of each species. Also, the number of species included were not substantial. There were a few species I saw that weren't included in the app. So...disappointing. Am purchasing a book that is substantially more comprehensive and thorough.

Search feature is rubbish

What’s the point of being able to search if you can’t narrow it down by type? You should be able to select wading birds vs song birds, for instance.

First Rate

This is a great bird guide app — Beautifully organized by family, info on habitat etc. 100+ videos show courtship displays, mating, nesting, chicks—calls, habitat, etc.
