BirdPro is the ultimate app for identifying and appreciating the birds of Kruger National Park. It boasts an award winning identification tool and has a vast source of information:
- Over 3000 beautiful and diagnostic images from various angles and of all variants, e.g. immature, males, females, dark and light morphs
- Over 1000 comprehensive and clear bird calls
- Informative and comprehensive information on each bird
- Interactive and accurate bird distribution maps, even showing the migration patterns per month where applicable.
- Names of birds in 16 languages, including most native South African languages as well as Scientific, German, French and Portuguese.
The SmartSearch function allows you to select your current, or any other location and the birds at that location will be filtered. Over and above the GPS location, you can search by shape, type, colours, size, where seen, bird calls and more. There are 100's of attributes you can choose from, which makes identifying a bird accurate and easy. As a first ever bird app achievement, the resulting bird list is sorted by relevance with the most probable birds matching your search criteria at the top, which makes it extremely quick and accurate. The ability to remove birds from the results is a game-changer. It even has a section for hard to identify birds (LBJ's, etc)
You can also log your sightings with trip descriptions, date, photos and notes, which are then indicated as pins on the distribution maps. Sightings lists can be viewed and can even be synced to a website and shared between devices.
No internet connectivity is required to operate the app after it is installed which makes it possible to use the app in the most remote locations.
All updates are regular and free.

Ratings and Reviews
Very useful search function. Great images. I like it that the images are real photographs and not drawings. The distribution maps are great especially the distribution according to month of the year. The info is also great. But the best part is the search functionality. Please make one for the entire SA as well.

Thanks for the feedback. The SA version is in progress.
Well thought out app with excellent photos and details. Differentiations between different calls Amazing. I’m definitely getting the app for the rest of Southern Africa when it’s finished

Thanks for the feedback. We will keep you updated on the SA version
Enjoy the App and the clear pictures.
One bug: Every time I want to play a call, it closes the App. Hope that can be fixed soon as I was particularly excited that the calls are separated by call type (normal, alarm, etc.)
