Description

iBird Pro is a self-contained, take-anywhere-no-Internet-required app that turns your iPhone into a field guide to birds of North America. iBird offers a search engine designed for identifying birds plus a neural-network feature for identifying birds from any photo. What birders say they love about iBird the most is its premium-quality encyclopedic reference to every avian species in the United States, Canada, the Hawaiian Islands, the United Kingdom, Ireland, and the unique island nation of Palau, which should be on every birder’s life-list. iBird follows conventions of the 2019-20 American Ornithological Union (AOU) standard. iBird inspired Apple to feature it in their famous "We have an app for that" videos. (go to: bit.ly/ibirdmovie). Why? Because, most notably, iBird offers functionality not found in books or most other birding apps. ILLUSTRATIONS. Accurate drawings are a must for the correct identification of any bird. Only iBird has full-size, high-resolution, hand-drawn, field-marked illustrations for every species. These composite illustrations contain images of the male, female, juvenile, bird-in-fight, and other variations in plumage based on age or location. PHOTOS. Unlike other bird apps, iBird contains a growing library of over 4,000 photographs, allowing you to see the species in multiple settings and real-life environments. No other birding app offers both illustrations and photographs. FIELD-MARKS. Another way iBird enhances your birding experience—a detailed field mark layer that exists for each illustration can be toggled on or off to highlight important identification characteristics. MAPS. iBird has Range Maps for every species that show where the bird spends its time throughout the year. SONGS. To enhance your ability to identify any species, iBird contains over 4,000 birdsong and bird-call recordings. These are super-useful to confirm an ID or when you can hear but not see the bird. PHOTO RECOGNITION. iBird's amazing Photo Sleuth feature takes advantage of modern AI-based photo recognition techniques to identify any bird from any photograph, even a poor-quality, fuzzy photo. See how Photo Sleuth works: bit.ly/ibirdphoto. SMART SEARCH. We’ve saved the best for last—iBird's patented, comprehensive Percevia™ nature-based search engine that will turn novices into bird ID experts. The search engine comes with 35+ characteristics of birds that can be searched (e.g., body-color, GPS location, habitat, bill shape, song type, etc.). Unlike most birding apps, no Internet connection is required to use iBird in the field—it has a self-contained database of all content. iBird Pro’s architecture is now “consolidated,” with four countries contained in its database: North America, United Kingdom, and Ireland, Hawaii, and Palau. More databases will be added to iBird in the future. In addition to all of the features we’ve mentioned, iBird Pro comes with these additional features: Birds Around Me (BAM)—shows just those species within a radius surrounding your GPS location, Percevia™ smart search—a patented feature that helps you identify birds just like the birding experts, Time-of-Day—lets you search for birds by activity levels during day or night, dawn, dusk, etc., Owls of Mexico—includes illustrations with field marks, range maps, songs and calls for 16 remarkable Owl species. Version 12.7 adds 5 new illustrations—to see these go to Search > Illustration Update > 12.7.

My Favourite Bird App (No longer)
I can`t find one on 2022-08-08
Another Edit Aug 3rd Where’s our restored App promised on June 26 to be released in a few days? July 27th BOUGHT all the add ons mentioned in the new Version History for an App that I BOUGHT that is now disabled. Also using Peterson Guides. They stopped updating them but didn’t disable them! Now using Audubon & Merlin full time. Would like to have the use of the iBird app & all the add ons I bought including ibird Journal.Not sure if Sleuth will work (Also bought that separately) Still not going to subscribe with 1 year free trial but will use Older Version if it is restored.Also want access to all the add ons I previously purchased please. Might buy useful updates to that Version if they were available. Maybe it’s just me but I think the better way to deal with this with current Owners of this app is to give the option to purchase Updates from the way this app was before this switch. If you want updates,buy them. Some updates you might want,some you might not want (exactly like the add ons) I bought all of them,some people may have bought some of the add ons & some may have bought none. Let new people buy into (or not) the Subscription Model.

Do NOT Update! Do NOT Purchase!
LoRob on 2022-08-08
Unless you want to continually pay for this app each and every year, avoid it and look elsewhere. I bought iBird Pro so I could have my guide book in my pocket. While I can understand the publisher wanting a continuing monetary stream for ongoing development, I don’t want a subscription and I don’t like the fact that I can’t just keep my out of date app for use without avoiding the ‘update all’ apps button in the App Store. I am sure that without additional income from subscriptions this app may cease to exist in the future, and I will have to look for another great bird guide from my phone. I only wish they had created an iBird Pro 2 app so that existing customers didn’t have to avoid updates. My advice is do NOT buy this app and do NOT update.
Do not accept unilateral change to terms of use.

I purchased this ap outright and now they want to charge an annual subscription for the item I have purchased and own. I am now locked out of my purchase unless I agree to a subscription model. These people are unethical and deceitful. If they want to charge a subscription then it should be for new users and in case of an upgrade. The original app that I have purchased should continue to be fully functional. I don’t want the upgrades as am not a pro bird enthusiast. I own various software from Microsoft, Adobe and others. When they switched to a subscription model my original software still is fully functional. Subscription only applies if I choose to upgrade. DONT BUY THIS AP. There are others that work justt as well.

App being disabled or forced to subscription
Tacion Storm on 2022-08-08
The app is generally great to use. I'm giving it a one star to register my dissatisfaction with this company's business practices. I paid to own an app. Now it seems the app will soon be disabled and I'll be forced to pay a subscription if I want to continue to use it. I would be happy to use the existing app without any further updates (new bird species don't evolve that quickly) but that is not an option. I will try to find another app and do my best to inform others of this shady business practice. Good riddance Mitch Waite Group! Update-july 19: I'm trying the free Audubon app. Seems pretty good.
J’ai perdu mon achat😡
Michel Durand on 2022-08-08
J’ai acheté iBird pro il y a un certain temps de cela et voilà que je ne peux plus l’ouvrir parce que, en faisant la mise à jour, on me demande de payer un abonnement. C’est du vol. J’ai payé une version et je ne veux pas la dernière. Je veux récupérer mon achat. Une nouvelle version, en ce lundi 11 juillet, me redonne l’accès à l’application que j’ai acheté. CEPENDANT, il est écrit que le 01-08-2023, mon « abonnement » prendra fin. C’EST INCONCEVABLE. VOUS NE POUVEZ REPRENDRE UN PRODUIT (MON APPLICATION) QUE J’AI LÉGALEMENT ET OFFICIELLEMENT ACHETÉ
Great app, sneaky strategy
Worried about efficiency on 2022-08-08
Have been using and enjoying this app for several years. This latest update changes model to a subscription, which is fine for a new version that the user has an option on. Other apps respect that the user paid for the previous software and don’t ‘take that away from users’ who are not interest in upgrading. Certainly a new take on an in-app purchase — taking away what the user has already paid for! Marketing strategy that won’t work for this user! There are other apps out there and this user will not be sending more money to this developer.

Night review on 2022-08-08
So many missteps in transitioning to a subscription model. I cautiously upgraded to ver 12.7.3 to extend the subscription period to August 2023 as promised. It did NOT extend the subscription period. Disappointed but not surprised. These guys don’t know or read their audience. The update to 12.7.3 did not extend the subscription date. Makes one wonder if you could have possibly rolled this upgrade out to a subscription model in a more clumsy or poorly communicated fashion. Don’t reward failure. Amateur hour.

Start for free - upgrade anytime!
