What’s New

Version 10.06

Besides compatibility with the iPhone X, this new expanded version of iBird is completely updated for the 2017 American Ornithological Union (AOU) Supplement. There are two new species; the Cassia Crossbill and the Sinaloa Wren. The Thayer’s Gull has been lumped as a subspecies of the Iceland Gull. Plus there are over 100 small changes, some of which are listed below.

In our continuing effort to improve our illustrations and photos we have updated the following 7 species drawings with much improved composite illustrations (the full version of iBird, Plus, Pro and Ultimate has 32 new species drawings): Broad-tailed Hummingbird, Bronzed Cowbird, Cassia Crossbill, Hairy Woodpecker, Killdeer, Say's Phoebe, Sinaloa Wren. You can see these in a matched list by selecting Search->Illustration Update->10.06.

There are 7 new AOU changes to Families (not all of these are in iBird Yard): Sylviid Warblers (Sylviidae) changed to Old World Babblers (Timaliidae), Leaf Warblers (Phylloscopidae) changed to Bush Warblers, Tesias and Allies (Cettidae), Grassbirds (Megaluridae) changed to Grassbirds (Locustellidae), Cardinals & Piranga Tanagers (Cardinalidae) changed to Spindalises (Spindalidae), Emberizids (Emberizidae) has a new famuly New World Sparrows and Towhees (Passerellida). Finally the family Parulidae has changed to Icteriidae. Note the family Icteriidae is monotypic, containing only a single species, the Yellow-breasted Chat (Icteria virens).

Owls of Mexico
Includes Owls of Mexico, the first time we have extended the North America database to include new species. In this collection our favorite 16 Owls of Mexico and Central America are presented in all the high quality detail iBird is known for, including illustrations with field marks, range maps, songs and calls, photos, ID and behavior data and much more. Take a look at the graphical onboard tutorial on the Purchase page for a visual presentation of a typical species account for this package.

Time of Day Search
The new Time of Day search feature lets you filter birds by activity intervals during day or night (Cathemeral), dawn and dusk (Crepuscular), during the day (Diurnal) or during the night (Nocturnal). Time of Day Notes which provide additional information about a species behavior are found on each species from a new Time of Day menu. The Time of Day feature is particularly useful for birders who are interested in night birding.

Love this app

I like the multiple ways to ID a bird-shape, color, sound, area. These feathered friends are sometimes fleeting or hidden and reveal only a hint on who they are. A lot of work goes into creating a good database.

??? What the heck

By and all most of the Ibird guides are great. This one shows birds for my ares that do not show up here except under very , very rarely times and does not show birds that are common. The White pelican does not show up down here often but the Brown pelican is very common. This guide shows the white here but not the brown. I can go on with others but I will not now

You are awesome and amazing ,


I love this easy to use app with more than 100 species of bird. I enjoy this app so much even when I'm at dinner. This minute learning app is just incredible.
