iBird Lite Free Guide to Birds




    Our most awesome update ever.

    iBird Lite Free Guide to Birds is a free demo version of our comprehensive paid iBird Pro Guide to Birds app and introduces you to birding with no cost. Whether you are an experienced birder, a bird watcher or a beginner at birding, iBird’s intelligent search engine and comprehensive species accounts will turn you into a birding expert. Completely up to date with the 2016 AOU and ABA checklists, iBird Lite contains a database of 50 species of both native and rare North American and Hawaiian birds. It's the perfect way to evaluate if you want to enjoy the hobby of birding for free.

    Using iBird's patented “Percevia” matching system you can identify birds by color, location, shape, habitat or any one of our 34 identification attributes. You can even search by bird song. iBird's species pages have thousands of built-in bird songs from the talented recordists of the Xeno-Canto community, hundreds of professional high resolution bird photographs plus hand drawn composite illustrations (with field marks) and detailed range maps. No other bird app offers both illustrations and photographs.

    From well-known birds to exotic rare species, iBird works like magic, revealing a list of birds that perfectly matches your search choices. With over 1 million total downloads, iBird is the standard that all birding apps are measured by.

    I am amazed by how responsive and intuitive iBird's user interface is. I only installed the free sampler version, but I am so impressed that I will be back for iBird Pro.

    Start app, after a few seconds get "unfortunately ibird lite has stopped". + "report" "ok" at bottom of screen, select report, nothing happens. Older version (3.1) works great on my obsolete phone.
