Professional Field Guide (Bird Identifier) for 515 bird species inhabiting Europe - from the Atlantic Ocean to the Urals, and from the Arctic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea. The list of bird species included in the app can be viewed at http://ecosystema.ru/eng/apps/21birds_eu.htm
The application has a built-in polytomic Bird Identifier (Identification Filter), which helps to determine the unknown bird by 24 different features. You can select the region of Europe, the size of the bird, plumage coloration, streaks, beak and feet shape and color, distinctive features of appearance, behavior, habitats, location of a sitting bird, song and calls, daily activity, nest size, shape, construction material and location, eggs size and color. The Identifier will help you to narrow down the range of species for unknown bird.
TERRITORY OF USE
The application covers most of the territory of Europe and can be successfully used in the most part of Northern, Western, Central, Southern and Eastern Europe, including Scandinavia, Baltic States, France, Spain, Balkan countries, Transcaucasia, Northern Kazakhstan and other adjacent territories.
20 EUROPEAN LANGUAGES
The app is composed on 20 European languages, including English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Hellenic and others. The user can choose any of these languages.
For each of 515 bird species, the app provides one combined recording, including male songs and several most typical calls – alarm, aggression, interaction, contact and flight calls, etc. Each of the recordings can be played in four different ways: 1) once, 2) in a loop without interval, 3) in a loop with an interval of 10 seconds, 4) in a loop with an interval of 20 seconds.
PHOTOS AND DESCRIPTIONS
For each species, a several photos of the bird in nature (male, female or immature, bird in flight), distribution maps and eggs are given, as well as a text description of the appearance, behavior, features of reproduction and feeding, distribution and migrations.
The app has a built-in Quiz, which can train you to recognize birds by their voices and appearance. You can play the quiz repeatedly – the questions for recognizing species alternate in random order and are never repeated! The difficulty of the Quiz can be adjusted – change the number of questions, change the number of answers to choose from, turn on and off bird images.
The main functions of the application are free - for each species of bird, you can view its image and text description and add species to Favorites (these functions are available offline), as well as play a recording of its voice (if you have an Internet connection and no more than 1 time per minute). Paid functions allow unlimited use of the Identification Filter and Quiz, open access to additional color images, and also make it possible to play all recordings of bird voices offline.
