Rarely has so much useful information been assembled in such an easy-to-use format for any purpose. iBird helps novices and pros understand the location, habits, songs and images of birds, common and uncommon, in an intuitive format, making identification simple and straightforward. All good.

This has everything that a bird lover needs. I especially like the combo of artwork and photos. Love the bird sounds. Sometimes I know of a bird's presence, not by sight, but by sound, which makes this feature very helpful. A very beautiful program. Love it!

iBirds Guide to Birds of North America

Five stars, it quick in response, informative, covering all aspects that I want on my tablet when out in the field identifying birds. Being able to record notes is a very good feature, and the e mail ability makes passing on information invaluable.

Wonderful - just wonderful

Just got this app and can't say enough about it. Very easy to use but it has a lot of functionality. My wife and I ID'd a recent deck visitor in just a few minutes. The sounds really help. The Flickr link is a great resource as are the other functions. Very well done. Kudos to the authors. Just installed on my Surface 3 running Windows 10. Works great. November 2015. Fast forward to May 2016. Somehow iBird disappeared from my Surface 3. No big deal, I'll reinstall. After many hours I learned it won't install on MicroSD storage. 64GB high end Samsung where all other apps install and run fine. I then installed iBird on internal storage just fine. I know some apps will tell you they can only be installed on internal storage C: (for example) but this app doesn't. I suspect it should.

After doing several others I use iBird almost exclusively, mostly on my Android phone. The Windows version is also very nice on my touch laptop.tablet but nowhere near as quick and intutitive and easy to use in tablet mode as the Android interface. Please provide an option to use the same interface on Windows as on Android, thanks!

I Bird for Win 10

Illustrations very good. Trying to identify birds with category choice hit and miss so far, more practice will help I'm sure. Also got the mobile for Android, so far haven't used it much, but I am impressed with the presentation on a small screen.

Great App!

This is my favorite Windows 8/10 App so far. Excellent database, well organized, and the additional Flickr photos are a fantastic extra.
