    Love this app! It's very nice to be able to just click one button and have the bird added to my list with location.

    Is there an app like this for the average Joe? $20 is a bit steep if you just want to identify a few birds around the block.

    The Audubon Guide Series is created in alliance with the National Audubon Society. Our Audubon bird app (with over 760 species) contains thousands of professional photographs, range maps, and bird songs and calls. The app contains newly updated information, including detailed species descriptions. The reference material is extensive: Bird families, Plumage and Molt, Parts of a bird, Classification, Conservation, Endangered and threatened birds of North America, How to Bird, How to identify birds, Bird Habitats, a Natural history of birds, and a Glossary. With this mobile app, you do not need an internet connection when in the field. The species information is downloaded to your mobile device, so you have access to it at any time, for perusing before you go out birding, or during your nature hike. This app contains the entire content, and more, of two printed field guides (Eastern and Western birds) which retail for about $20 each.

    The app also lets you connect to our AudubonGuides.com website, where you can join our community to manage your Sightings and Life Lists, as well as save your photos to an album. Our online bloggers are expert naturalists who provide daily updates on wildlife activities throughout North America. We offer a wealth of information designed to appeal to a wide audience - anyone interested in understanding and identifying the hundreds of species of birds in North America.

    was waiting for iBird Pro to toss my money at - but they seem slow in coming (or not at all - I loved their app on my iPod Touch before it died)

    Bought this one instead

    I had/have iBird Pro on my iPhone and iTouch but it is HUGE at over 250MB. My Evo only has about 317MB of storage remaining until Froyo permits use of the SD card for app storage.

    I am sorry but $20 is a LOT of money for information that I could get with a simple Google search in the browser. I know it is not the same but wow... ii

    I would want several of these reference apps if I could put them on the SD card. Do they only store on the internal memory?

    Also a long time wish of mine is an app that allows you to capture a bird's song and it identifies it for you in conjunction with the Audubon bird app. That would be awesome!

    I have this app and really like it. Only wish I could move the executable to the SD card (the app's data is already stored there).

    Like someone else said, $20 is a lot of money. I'd love an app like this though, if it was a lot cheaper.

    We are currently working to allow storage on the SD card. I will update the forum when that becomes available. I wish we had that technology for the sound id!

    Justine,

    I understand the work involved and the cost of the Birds Guide. However, that is a lot of money to try something out. Do you have a trial or lite version to show how the app works?

    I understand man. You can charge anything you like, it is all about what the market will bear.

    I am interested in wide life etc.. but I am not a birder so it is an app that I simply would not need enough to pay that much for. If I was into it I may consider it but even then I think $10 is about right for an app like this these days.

    For $5 I would buy it just to have it even though I would probably not use it much. I would pay $10 if I was heavily into the subject. I would probably not pay $20 even if I was.

    Hey! Blame Apple, they started the cheap app market. ii
