What People are Saying:

“Now every birder can have the equivalent of a rare bird alert and comprehensive field guide wrapped into a single mobile app.” - Gary Langham, vice president and chief scientist for Audubon

“Instead of the hefty field guides, the apps give the nature photographer a very portable and lightweight library of natural history information.” – Jim Clark, Outdoor Photographer Magazine

AppPicker (“Best of” Lists, Jan 2013): “Audubon Birds…largely regarded as the best bird watching app…”

2011 APPY Award Finalist

“All I can say is WOW and double WOW! I have had Audubon Birds for a couple of years and have seen it grow into the BEST bird app for iOS! ...I am just blown away with all the new additions. My favorite is showing all the birds in a group (thumbnails) and when tapped lightly the name shows up. What a way to learn new birds. I just cannot express how much I love the update. Thank you…” - E Uhls

User reviews of Audubon Birds Pro
Pros: UI is nice and there is loads of good audio. Cons: Once you get it synced (all day) there are no range maps. There's a spot for them, but it's just blank. Audubon put it's name on this and charges a premium, but don't be fooled. It's half-baked. I am a yearly donor to the Audubon Society and I'm disappointed. I'll be trying Sibley next.

Would like the option to move to the sd card

The syncing process is horrible, it took 8 hours on a fast wifi. The feedback on progress is missing. Then when I finally get all the data synced the spinning cursor appears when I try to do anything: open a new species, play a sound, view a photo. Replaced this with iBird Pro instead and its so much better.

Will not display offline content This used to work prior to the last update. Since then, the app will not show offline content. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and redownloaded the content multiple times, with no success. In addition, the only way I can get the images to reappear (even when wifi ison) is to delete the offline content completely. Finally, I submitted a help desk request to the developer six days ago. They said they would respond to my request within 48-hrs. They have not. Most of the time I want to use this app is offline, so it is effecitively useless for me now. I really hope they get this fixed! I will revise my rating to 5-stars when it has been.

Nice when it works Since the last update downloaded content will not display on my Galaxy S4. Had to Uninstall and reinstall without downloading birds data for offline viewing. Data will only display online. This app used to work offline in areas without cellphone data coverage but now if you download the Birds data nothing will display on or offline. The app also crashes frequently. If you want to see the birds data cancel the birds data download and stay in range of a cell tower.

Has great potential, but needs to be updated This application has great potential, but badly needs to be updated for newer devices. On my HTC One I have experienced the same issue with images and sounds not showing up after downloading the data. I believe the root of the problem can be found in the FAQs " I can't see the pictures and I already downloaded the content! Please verify that the app is storing to your SD Card and not the Phone." Many newer devices do not have traditional/ removable SD cards, but only fixed memory.

Horrible Set-up Software rejects every password combination. Invites Facebook sign-in option which cannot work unless one has the application password that cannot be completed. Once an email is associated with an attempt, it cannot be used again as it is then associated with another account, even if that account attempt failed. After the second email associate was linked, the same sequence of failing to yield an account took place. I am stuck now in sign-in limbo and no place to call. It is essentially unfair that one has to be mandated to create an account to access all features advertised in the app description. O stars. This is not a free version but the paid version. I am past the 15 minutes for a refund but will uninstall the junk and warn other.

Content missing Like many other users, I've found that despite the huge download the content doesn't load. I had to reinstall and choose not to download content. Then it works provided I have internet access. Please fix.
