Wowed ...

This is wonderful. If you're ever prone to leafing through bird books, this is a must have (and tons more fun). It's been awhile since an app "wowed" me. This one does.

Excellent field guide!

I love the descriptions the bird information and the bird calls. I sit outside and use this to attract and sing with the birds...they do answer too!

The best

This is far better than any other app, and just as good in terms of material as any of the top books. I do wish it existed for Windows phones, though. It would be nice if I didn't have to carry a tablet (Surface or Kindle Fire) with me.

I enjoy birds and having this software to help identify the ones I see and learn more about them is great. The pictures are very good along with all the information included.

Excellent guide..

..glad to own this great resour/ce for win rt and win 8.1. Love the features, including song clips, photos, and drawings. Useful, functional, and aesthetically well done. The search by criteria feature is powerful. One of the best programs in my tablet, If I would be an extremist, I would recommend purchasing a Win tablet just to run this program.... I wish there similar guides for trees and shrubs.. Will have to get binoculars.. It has crashed a few times in WIN RT, when searching for a given species using multiple criteria. I am using a ms surface on win 8 rt and a Surface PRO

Best one out there - could get better

I've enjoyed it on many platforms, but really like it on Windows 8 / 8.1. I'd rather see it get ported to a Universal app now (as it needs a little love) so I can use it on my Windows Phone 8.1 as well. I do get some random crashes, and some of the Windows store metaphors need to get followed more closely. OneDrive integration (or OneDrive API integration for favorites lists) would be nice for cross-device or out of band bird watching. Definitely worth it!
