Birds of Europe


This e-guide to the birds of Great Britain and Europe is part of a series of mobile systems for identifying species in nature. They were developed as part of the EC KeyToNature project aiming to provide easy access to flora and fauna information.

This app contains:

- Information on 448 species of birds (distribution, habitat, food, etc.)
- 1360 photographs
- The sounds of 435 species
- An interactive key for identifying species
- An alphabetical list of species with a search function

This application is an adapted mobile version of the CD-ROM ‘Birds of Europe’, published by ETI, Netherlands (ISBN 90-75000-98-7). In addition to this e-fauna, other e-guides covering plants, butterflies, fish, reptiles and amphibians are available or in preparation.

Lots to improve but still a good app I'm not a bird watcher so the always exact identification in field is not the most important for me. I'm a wildlife photographer and this is the best app available so far for identifying birds of Europe. Audobon does good guides but they don't care about the European android market (they've had YEARS to get something done) and that pisses me off so no more books bought from them. I still like this app a lot but it's a bit expensive and there is a lot of improvements to be done in it, but until others enter the market I guess they don't have any incentive. Distribution maps is of course one big improvement to be done and another is making the step by step identification by sight more advanced.

Buy it for the bird sounds How else could you have the sounds of 435 European birds in your pocket? Pin-tailed sandgrouse, Bonelli's eagle, Thekla lark...... fantastic to have everything in one place! Use it alongside a conventional field guide if you need detailed distribution maps. Well worth the 10 euros, but only 4 stars awarded because some of the sounds are extremely short, and there doesn't appear to be a distinction between calls and songs. The identification guide is a useful extra, well thought-out and nicely arranged to narrow down the choices with difficult groups like waders. It would be better if the developers' website showed a list of birds included, rather than the list of authors. Without such a list, it feels slightly risky to buy the app "in the dark", (although the impressively large number of birds included means that you're unlikely to be disappointed.)
