"In southern Africa the Sasol eBirds would undoubtedly be my first choice. The text is detailed, the navigation system is user friendly and the opportunity to listen to recordings of calls and songs is a huge asset. Above all, the superb paintings by Norman Arlott and Peter Hayman have stood the test of time and are more detailed, more accurate and more life-like than anything on offer in other birding apps for the region." — Mark Cocker, author of Birds and People

FEATURES:
- Images, distribution maps and text descriptions of over 950 bird species found in the Southern African region.
- Audible calls for over 630 bird species
- A "Smart Search" that allows you to easily identify a bird using beak shape, bird size, bird colour and habitat.
- You can select a region of Southern Africa, so that the lists of birds throughout the program display only the birds in your region. Includes GPS detection of your current location.
- "Bird Compare" to allow you to compare two birds on the same screen (including calls).
- A personal bird list that stores your bird sightings saved to the device* and can be exported to your storage card, email or to ebird.org extended record format.
- GPS location tagging of bird sightings.
- View the Bird Index by English or Afrikaans bird names.

* 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).

Can get 5 star rating Great product but Smart Search needs a lot of work. Very difficult to get matches. I would suggest a more graphical approach may help

Sasol ebirds Great app! But could do with least prefix matching and it should take you to a typing space if you select alphabetic.

Great App, for beginner birders and expert This app is by far a great app to add to your birding inventory. I find birds so much easier thanks to the sounds. And with the sounds I can identify them so much quicker than having to reference the photos. And I don't have to carry heavy books around. HATS off to the developers!!

Brilliant Very good app. Just need a way of seeing if I have seen a bird before when in the taxonomic or alphabetic list. Can be a pain having to go in and out all the time to check

Try before you buy I like the fact you can download the free lite version to see how & if it works, was looking at the roberts app, but looks like lots of unhappy customers if you read reviews. Very happy with Sasol bird app. No download problems worked first time👍
