IBIRD YARD PLUS Guide to Birds—The #1 field guide app for backyard birders.

As a bonus you'll find 84 additional common species all birders should know about.

Look at what ABA magazine had to say about iBird:

Diana Doyle of American Birding Association’s "Birding" magazine, says:
"If you’re looking for the most expansive digital key, the encyclopedia-like iBird excels. It has the most sophisticated algorithm, incorporates live location, shows search results in real time (with a slide show option) and has the most fine-grained advanced key choices.”
- "The Quest for a Bird Identification Key" March/April 2014 issue

What’s new in 7.25: We tweaked a number of important features in version 7.25 of iBird Yard Plus.

SAVE SEARCH
You asked for a way to set certain attributes to there defaults, such as your home state or your favorite family of birds, so you did not have to select them every time you restarted the app. Save Search, found on Search menu, allows you to save any set of attributes you want iBird to remember for future searches.

SEARCH BY COMMON NAME, LATIN NAME OR BAND CODE
Now there is a button to the right of the search field you can use to toggle between the 3 options. So much easier!

VIEW AND SORT MODE WORKS WITH FAVORITES
Many asked for a way to sort Favorites by Family or Last name, and to view Favorites in Compact mode or Thumbnail mode. Well now you can!

POPUPS
To help first-time iBird users, we added popups that appear the very first time you use certain critical features of the app.

TURN OFF SOUND AUTOPLAY
You now have the option of disabling the Sound Autoplay feature. Customers requested it since the sounds can disturb birds in the field.

FIXED LOCATION UNCOMMON
We discovered that there were some real problems with Location Uncommon and Location Common. We corrected them, and suffice it to say, these two attributes work much better now.

As always, Mitch Waite Group’s iBird Yard Plus offers these exceptional features:

■ iBird's Search Engine has 19 attributes to help you identify birds. You can search for birds by location, color, shape, song, habitat, head and body/bill patterns, flight style and much more. If you saw a yellow bird in California with a cone shaped bill, iBird will show you in 3 steps that it’s an American Goldfinch. No other app can do this as well as iBird.
■ Day and Night Themes. Day theme is black text on a paper-white background while night theme is white text on a black background.
■ Over 1,000 high-quality bird song and call recordings.
■ iBird apps are the only products with BOTH illustrations and photos.
■ 18 Subspecies Range Maps show migrations and locations of numerous subspecies during the year.
■ Field Mark Layer. A detailed field mark layer on all illustrations can be turned on or off and helps you to learn the key ID characteristics to look for in a species.
■ Photo Center. Add your own photos to species accounts and store them in Dropbox.
■ Slideshow. Customize a list of birds and enjoy a slideshow complete with songs and calls.
■ Sync. Your favorites, notes, and photos are automatically synced to your Dropbox.

AWARDS and ACCOLADES for iBird:

■ MACWORLD'S "BEST REFERENCE APP 2009: 4 ½ out of 5 mice."

■ RECOMMENDED BY SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN MAGAZINE
