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.

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.

Great birding resource

Love the notes and favorites. Easily 5 stars if syncing of notes is added so my notes are on both my PC & tablet. Thanks for supporting Windows.

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.

Not as functional as ibird for Apple

Sorry to say but I do not like this version.

Great Start on finding breed & Speciman

The simplicity is wonderful for a start on identification. Does Not have all North American Birds and the sounds produced are sometimes poorly recorded. The faults of this program will give you a stour beginning

Great app except...

I love this app, it's very detailed and great for newbies. I would have given it 5-stars except that it randomly crashes. For the past 30min that I've been using the app, it has crashed twice
