Based on How it Works, Very Good.

We’re going to CR soon and I read about this; read about the developers; got it and ran it through some paces. It could use more pics of some of the birds but several are well illustrated. I cannot judge the correctness of data about the birds but two of the developers earn their livings leading bird watching tours in Costa Rica, where they all live; I can’t imagine they’d want to be associated with shoddy information.

As I write there are 578 birds in the app. You can filter them by Group, by Region/Stratum, by Color, Size, Head Pattern, Underparts, Back and Sound. Each one (I haven’t viewed them all) has information consisting of Field Marks, Description, Habitat, a range map and a place for you to write notes.

Of the birds in the filter you can sort them alphabetically or by group or family.

I’m impressed by the job they’ve done and I look forward to using the app in CR. If they had a few more pics and some more sounds I’d give it a 5.

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.

Great app for all levels of birders

A lot of people at Arenal Observatory Lodge in La Fortuna were using this app. Loved the fact they have photos, vocalizations and ranges attached to the bird description. Being able to email a photo of the bird to the developers is very handy for hard-to-identify species. Nice touch.
