Unfortunately there is still no Great white egret which are far more common nowadays then other species they've featured - (it appears that their status information is now out of date). But still a fantastic app and well recommended with excellent photos and illustrations. The layout is easy enough to follow along with the illustrations and maps (although some essential angles are missing such as the goshawk from below). Certainly one of the better bird apps available but, now that the new Collins app is now out, unfortunately that means that it has now overtaken this app and is the new the benchmark for bird apps. This also means this app will now sadly lack behind its rival until I see ALL the ESSENTIAL species with angles.
Loved the app, with the only shortcoming that there are few female photos and/or descriptions. Best of all, it's on the SD card, and I can look even though I have no internet coverage.
Best android Bird guide so far. Good identification highlights. But strange absence of female pictures, and species coverage is still limited even for UK. More continental European birds would also be good.
Far exceeded my expectations. This app provides a massive amount of well-organized information on the birds of the British Isles. I'll be birding in the U.K. for the first time this summer, and this app was worth every penny for the amount of preparation I've been able to do using it. I'd like to offer three suggestions that would make it even more awesome. First, it would be wonderful to be able to organize a favorites list in an order other than alphabetical. I've made a favorites list of the birds I'm likely to see in the area I'm visiting and would like to sort them into taxonomic order, but am not given that option. Second, more information and images of females in sexually dimorphic species would be helpful. Third, being able to listen to songs and calls while looking at images or reading text would add so much to the user's experience. Being able to link those sounds with an image or a description of a particular field mark or identifying behavior helps a lot when trying to learn new birds. Thus far, the Merlin app from Cornell is the only birding app I've used that offered this particular feature. Still fantastic overall!
The best birding app I have found so far. The ability to vary the presentation format and filter searches and browsing anyway you want is very useful. Most importantly, you can download all the content to your ext SD card so you can actually use it outdoors with or without mobile signal. Worth the money.
Love it I'm new to bird watching so have a lot to learn have used it off line out in the field it's great
