This is the lite version of the Sibley eGuide to Birds of North America. It only includes 30 birds, but gives users a good feel for how the full version (which is $19.99) works. This app includes hi-res images, sound recordings, territorial maps and more. Search by distinguishing features such as colors, size, etc., and you can also filter by state which limits your results to where you are actually located.
- Open app. You can go right to an Intro & Help page for Tips & other information. See the screenshot below.
- In the Main Menu, you can select which index you want to use – Taxonomic (bird-type) or Alphabetic. You can swipe through the listing to find the bird you are interested in getting more information on.
- Alternatively, you can do a Smart Search. This allows you to select Distinguishing Features including coloration, bird type & size. See the screenshot below.
- Once you get to the bird you are looking for, you will get a variety of information on the species. Included is a migration map, audio clip, images & other data helpful for classifying the species.
