From the National Wildlife Federation, America’s oldest and largest wildlife conservation education organization, comes a series of comprehensive and interactive apps that bring field guides into the 21st century.

The National Wildlife Federation Wildlife Guides will help you discover the wild animals, plants and mushrooms of North America via 50,000 pages of expert-curated content, thousands of the highest quality professional photographs, maps, and drawings, and more than 4,000 bird, mammal, insect, and amphibian sounds.

Get all the apps and carry one of the richest field guide series in your pocket wherever you go with 24/7 access at your fingertips!


This authoritative and easy-to-use guide features detailed accounts of 821 birds found in North America, with more than 3,200 photographs, 2,200 bird songs and calls, range maps, dynamic search functions and more.

Utilizing the latest iOS technologies, you can:

• Search by name (common and scientific) using either keyboard or verbal search systems; type or speak all or part of a bird’s name to search for its detailed account.
• Organize species alphabetically or taxonomically.
• Search by family, shape, habitat, region, color, size, wing shape, song or call type, voice patterns, and motion—or any combination.
• Touch to open any or all of the text sections, and to enlarge photos.
• Take notes and upload photos to keep a digital journal of your observations and share them with family, friends, and our growing online community.

Each species account contains:

• description with identification details
• habitat description
• range information
• range map
• voice descriptions and recordings of 2,200 bird songs and calls
• discussion of the species’ behavior and other notable characteristics
• Family and Order information
• photos of similar species with links to those species’ accounts

So much fun!

I’ve been using this app in the early mornings (predawn) to talk to the owls in the woods surrounding my house. Fills me with wonder every time.

Big rip off

I have 6 of these apps and not one of them will open.
I entered a review on one of the other apps and think I gave it a 1 rating. Now when I look at the review comment, the rating is 2 and my comment was edited.
After my bad review, the apps all started working and did for a couple of weeks. Now they simply hang up on the opening screen.
Others have reported the apps not opening at all when purchased.
Clearly support for these apps is pathetic at best, and to continue taking money for something that doesn’t work extremely suspect.
NWF should be ashamed…

All of my apps

All of my NWF APPS quit working completely. Won’t open.
