iBird Plus uses a unique parametric search engine to help you identify birds quickly. Narrow down possible species by selecting from: location (state), month, shape, size, habitat, primary color, secondary color, backyard feeder status, family, bill shape, bill length, head pattern, crown color, wing shape, flight pattern, conservation status (ICUN Red List threat status), song and song pattern. Or search by keyword, Latin name and band code.
When you have more time on your hands, browse through the sumptuous illustrations, professional photographs and comprehensive expert birding facts.
As a standalone iPhone app, iBird Plus does not require an Internet connection for access to the rich media information in its database. This does mean that the application is large, so please be patient when downloading from the iTunes app store.
