More Details of What’s New: bit.ly/ibird-whatsnew
In 2008 iBird broke new ground as it turned the iPhone into a field guide app that identifies birds and plays their songs. Featured in Apple’s television commercials, it started a revolution that made iBird the most respected birding app in the world.
** NOTE If you would like to try out iBird at no expense, check the newly released iBird LITE Free Guide to Birds of North America. It contains all the features of paid iBird Ultimate, but includes just 50 species. And it’s completely FREE. **

All I Need
IBird answers all my questions and informs me of birds location and status.
Very helpful, wonderful photos, the call section is particularly informative.
Fun to use on our recent trip to Kauai. I would like a better photo
