All birds CH - photo guide
iOS Universal Reference
***Do you plan to go bird watching in Switzerland? Then this is the app for you! Find information no other app has: bird population size Switzerland, abundance, migration and breeding status Switzerland - for all 417 species ever recorded incl. all irregular visitors!***
Comes with distribution maps and 2002 premium photos in HD-quality and more than 750 bird songs. You can map birds with GPS, make your own lists and explore 5 search modes, all bird names in 19 languages.
This exceptional app includes all species which have been listed by the Swiss Rarities Committee. It has been developed by passionate field ornithologists and published ecologists.
To quickly find a bird you are looking for, species can be sorted in several ways:
– A-Z bird names - choose between 19 (!) languages:
Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Icelandic, Italian, Japanese, Latin (scientific), Latvian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, and Swiss)
– By groups (gallery view or foldable list)
– Irregular visitors can be faded-in or -out
A simple identification key narrows the species down (e.g. by foot colour, bill shape etc.) leading to the bird searched for and a choice of similar species. You can also look for fragments of a species name through a search screen – the search for “finch“, e.g., shows all the species which include the word „finch“ in the species’ name.
Despite the abundance of species provided: in order to precisely identify a bird no previous knowledge or ornithological expert skills are required.
Of decisive help here are the qualitatively high-class large-scale images which show all bird species in their natural environment and, amongst others, originate from renowned photographers of the wildlife agency SUNBIRD IMAGES. The pictures have been chosen from thousands in order to allow the most reliable identification of the birds. The choice of photos is essential for identification: Bird pictures which only show the bird from front, like it is the case for many of the sloppily developed apps on the market, are of little use for birders.
This app provides extensive texts and data for each bird species with information to:
Appearance, ecology, population size, frequency, habitat and much more. The texts for this app have especially been written for Switzerland. This holds for population size, abundance, breeding status, local distribution etc.
