_______________________

Browse By Region allows you to see all the orders, families, and species of birds located in 225 countries and all 50 US states, plus most territories. You can also see the vernacular name of a given bird in the languages of that region. Great for bird identification and multi-lingual birding vacations!
_______________________

With Search By Name you can search for a bird's English (common) name or its Latin name. You can also limit your search to a specific country or state.
_______________________

Browse By Phylogenetic Tree is a way to see bird orders, families and species in their evolutionary context, according to the latest genetic studies.
_______________________

My List is a place for you to record your bird sightings. You record the date, location, and any pertinent notes about your sighting and it's saved to My List. You can also export My List as an email for backup or for incorporating into another life list.
_______________________

Data about bird species is from Wikipedia, meaning it is, on the whole, the most accurate and up-to-date information describing the world's birds.
_______________________

Note on taxonomies: Browse By Region uses a modified version of the Clements Checklist for species, family, and order relationships as it is the most intuitive. Browse By Phylogenetic Tree is adapted from genetic studies as outlined in Shannon J. Hackett's article in Science 320, 1763 (2008).
_______________________

Note on data connection: This application currently requires a data connection to view information about individual bird species.
_______________________

Demo Version: There is also a limited version called World Birds Demo available for free in the Android Marketplace. Use it to evaluate World Birds before purchasing this full version.

Discover the world of birding and the birds of the world!

Not worth money Handy search tool for birds in Wikipeadia and nothing else. My Birds so flawed as to be useless. Author ignores emails. Would be disappointing as a free app, let alone one you've paid money for.

Fantastic birding app. It's nice to see all birds, not just North America. Great for Europe. Very functional with a clean UI. Highly recommended.
