“Birds of Switzerland” is very well suited for keeping personalised bird watch lists.
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.
The app will be continuously developed further. In the future, more photos and songs as well as new identification features will constantly be added.
All updates are free of charge. Once downloaded no internet connection needed – just download the app and start birding!
