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 application has a built-in polytomic bird Voice Identifier (Identification Filter), which helps to determine the unknown bird by its appearance and voice. You can select the geographical region, the size of the bird, the location of the singing bird, the type of sound signal, and the time of a day. The Identifier will help you to narrow down the range of species for unknown bird.
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.
