Nice app

Bug fixed; I’m a happy camper. Looking forward to further enhancements.

Could be something but it is what it is.

You get exactly what you expect from people from Panama creating a book for another country. The range maps are god awful. They could of spent a little time im trying to make them even a little accurate. How about actually adding a rare color to the maps instead of telling us bare faced ibis residents. So many of these inaccuracies. For people that boast on their photos. You would think there would be more. Or actually good Ones. So many talented photographers could of been used in submissions. The audio is basically the worst. No consistency what so ever. If you are just an average birder or non birder. This online book will barely get you by.

They could of done so much more with this. Or spent time creating it.

Also never updates species. Lots of wrong names and merges that will likely never get changed.

I give it 2 stars cause it’s adaquate as a list for the country. It pretty much ends there

Easy to use.

This app is great, much easier than carrying a book and shuffling through the pages. There is a filter function that allows you to search for birds by characteristics like colors and size. Finding the birds like that is really easy without knowing their names.

I also like the ability to mark them as seen and heard. Then you can go and filter by marked as seen and you get a list with the species that you have observed. Great work.
