the best of the available birding apps

I own and use Audubon, iBird Pro, and Sibley's apps. Each has its strengths but speaking objectively, Audubon's birding app is the best-looking, the most informative, and my favorite to use.

Is It Any Good?

The Audubon Society's A FIELD GUIDE TO NORTH AMERICAN BIRDS is an invaluable, exhaustive resource for bird watchers. You'll find everything you need in order to learn about, identify and record sightings of more than 750 species of native birds -- including a detailed interactive search feature, audio clips of recorded bird calls, and thousands of stunning photographs. Best of all, there's no Internet connection required to access any of it. It's pricey, so it's not an app for the dabbler, but serious birders will appreciate its thoroughness.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
