NB: Please note that an additional download of 325MB is required once this app has been installed. Please ensure you use a WiFi connection to prevent additional data costs.

Michael Morcombe's Field Guide to Australian Birds has been called the most comprehensive field guide to Australian birds in the market today and now it is perfectly complimented by the eGuide which features:

● Optimised controls – swipe to next or previous species, one-tap enlargement of an image and rotate the device (landscape) to enlarge an image completely (and fit the width of the screen).
● Over 3000 hi-res bird images covering over 790 bird species.
● Most bird species have a detailed distribution map showing any subspecies that occur.
● Detailed text descriptions of almost all bird species including songs and calls, measurements and breeding behaviour.
● Over 1800 carefully-selected and edited sound recordings for over 600 species. Many species are represented with multiple call examples showing the full range of vocalizations.
● The ability to compare any two images, maps, or sounds, side by side on the screen.
● The ability to filter by geographic location, so that you see only the species likely to occur in your location, and to further reduce the possibilities to usual or vagrant species in the selected area.
● A "Smart Search" that gives the ability to search by distinguishing features such as size, colour, physical features, habitat and exclude certain types of birds (eg. Passerines).
● *A basic personal species list that stores your sightings saved to the device (ability to upload list coming soon)
● A comprehensive help and introduction section to help you if you get stuck or don’t understand how a certain feature works.

* Uninstalling/reinstalling the program will result in the loss of your list, it is recommended that you keep a backup from the application (My List -> Export).

Very difficult to down load this app to an iPad as it seems to only be available through Appbrain Rob Seems

My favourite app. It is easy to use, contains extensive information and allows me to log my finds easily. I love using the audio function to identify birds by their songs.

Great but... Does the job well, but lacks user friendly touches such as showing on the bird's page whether that bird has been logged. Given the price, some effort should be put into bells and whistles.

No support The app says you can download the 350Mb of data from the website but there is no link to any data on the site and no reply from the developers to my repeated emails. I'm sure it's great but I can't afford to install it at this time.
