What People are Saying:

“Now every birder can have the equivalent of a rare bird alert and comprehensive field guide wrapped into a single mobile app.” - Gary Langham, vice president and chief scientist for Audubon

“Instead of the hefty field guides, the apps give the nature photographer a very portable and lightweight library of natural history information.” – Jim Clark, Outdoor Photographer Magazine

AppPicker (“Best of” Lists, Jan 2013): “Audubon Birds…largely regarded as the best bird watching app…”

2011 APPY Award Finalist

“All I can say is WOW and double WOW! I have had Audubon Birds for a couple of years and have seen it grow into the BEST bird app for iOS! ...I am just blown away with all the new additions. My favorite is showing all the birds in a group (thumbnails) and when tapped lightly the name shows up. What a way to learn new birds. I just cannot express how much I love the update. Thank you…” - E Uhls

    Installs fine but won't run. Anyone else having this issue with both ASUS MeMo and Dell Venue?

    No photos load for any birds!!! The image shows before loading a species, then -- poof, no photos of the actual bird. Absolutely useless for a bird id app...

    Birds Pro does not work on my Samsung Galaxy 3. Bird images/pictures do not appear. Introductory pics can be seen. But none of the multiple images of each species appear.

    I purchased this app many years ago and have used it off and on over a few smart phones that I've had. Currently I'm running it on the GS5 and I'm using it more and more for my primary bird book needs. I love the new updates it's had this year and the new flow of things (which I still have yet to utilize everything) have been pretty impressive. The best thing about this is, since I don't get ou
