In 2008 iBird broke new ground as it turned the iPhone into a field guide that identifies birds and plays their songs. Featured in Apple’s television commercials, it started a revolution that made iBird the most respected birding app in the world. iBird is now completely updated with new species for 2017 and includes exciting new features.

** NOTE: If you would like to try out iBird check the newly released iBird LITE Free Guide to Birds of North America. It contains all the features of paid iBird Ultimate, including BAM, but contains just 35 species. And it’s completely FREE. **

Whether you are an experienced birder or a beginner, iBird Yard Plus is the best way to learn all about the birds in your garden.
