iBird Ultimate Guide to Birds App Description

iBird Ultimate is our most birding advanced app. It comes with the two advanced features built in: “Birds Around Me” (BAM), a feature which restricts the birds to just those found in your current GPS area and the patented “Percevia™ Smart Search” feature which gives anyone the skills of a bird identification expert. If you are not sure you’ll need these features you can try iBird Pro, a less expensive app which offers both these as in-app features you can buy at any time. iBird Plus is like Pro but has half the search attributes. iBird Ultimate also takes a major leap forward with “Time of Day” filtering available in version 10.06. You can now search for birds by activity levels during day or night (Cathemeral), dawn and dusk (Crepuscular), during the day (Diurnal) or during the night (Nocturnal). Also included in this version is our new Owls of Mexico and Central America package, including all the hard to find details which iBird is so well known for: illustrations with field marks, range maps, songs and calls and much more. More Details of What’s New: bit.ly/ibird-whatsnew iBird developers never sleep. Version 10.06 adds a unique collection of audio recordings for all Owls as well as 16 new composite illustrations. To see the latest drawings, go to Illustration Update on the Search menu and select 10.06. Whether you are an experienced birder or a beginner at birding, iBird Ultimate contains 946 species of both native and rare North American and Hawaiian birds, is completely up to date with the 2017 AOU and ABA checklists, and is the only app to offer both illustrations and photographs. With iBird Ultimate’s avian matching system you can search for birds by color, location, shape, habitat or any one of our 35 identification field marks to find your bird. iBird's comprehensive species pages have 3,300 built-in bird songs, 4,500 professional high resolution bird photographs, 1,750 hand drawn composite illustrations and over 1,000 range maps. Version 10.06 of iBird Ultimate Guide to Birds now includes iCloud for backing up and sharing your own photos, notes and favorites among all your devices. From tiny to angry birds, iBird works like magic, revealing a list of birds that perfectly matches your search choices. With over 1 million downloads iBird is the standard that all birding apps are measured by. ** NOTE If you would like to try out iBird at no cost check the newly released iBird LITE Free Guide to Birds of North America. It contains all the features of paid iBird Ultimate, but contains just 35 species. And it’s completely FREE. ** Features ■ Birds Around Me (BAM) narrows the species being searched to just those found at your GPS location, within a radius and season you specify. It come built-in to iBird Ultimate. ■ Percevia™ intelligent search is a patented algorithm that guarantees you will only choose search attributes that narrow the matched list of birds. It also comes built-in to iBird Ultimate. ■ iBird now takes advantage of the high-resolution retina displays of the iPhone and iPad so the screen shows more information than ever. ■ Contains the latest 2016/17 AOU and ABA checklists. ■ Splits-History. See what birds were renamed, split into different species or lumped together for every year. ■ View all birds by head which makes identification easier. ■ Back up and sync favorites and notes with iCloud and share with all your devices and your friends. ■ Fun new birder’s “stickers” to spruce up your text in Messages. Other Features ■ The Conservation Status search attribute lets you filter birds by 6 threat levels. The standard is maintained by Birdlife International and is called the IUCN Red List. ■ All screens optimized for tablets - illustrations, photos and range maps fill the screen. ■ Species, common and family names in English, French and Spanish (text is English).

  • iBird Ultimate

    By Ali Coo
    By far the best bird app I’ve come across. I recently told my sister about it and that I’ve become a Bird-Nerd. I’m hooked!
  • Good app, could be great

    By Jackster847
    I find the search criteria somewhat lacking. Also unhappy that I had to pay full price for this even though I had an earlier version of the app that I paid for.
  • Lost Checklists

    By DanHitch
    After last update I lost all checklists. Uggh!!
  • Very good app

    By Bigbirder46
    I have been a birder for over fifty-five years and have used many field guides and electronic apps. This is a very good app but can be improved with a comparison feature. It is very helpful to see two or three similar birds side by side without jumping back and forth. Hopefully this feature will be added in the next update.
  • My must-have for birding

    Use it frequently to find info about birds and to help with IDs. ❤️ it!
  • The best birdwatching app around, bar none!

    By Void1995
    I love this app! I use it every time I go out hiking and it’s amazing. The quality and detail of the pictures, the sounds, ranges, and morphs is amazing. I can find any bird with the specific searches and filters and it has helped me countless times. This is the best bird watching app around bar none. I highly recommend this app to anyone new through highly experienced who goes birdwatching. My only request is that they update it for the iPhone X to take full advantage of the larger and redesigned display as it doesn’t look as good when letter boxed. Thank you guys for such an amazing app!
  • I am a new bird watcher and love this app❤️❤️🤓👌🏼

  • Great App

    By haskins02
    Does everything I need it to. It would be even better if it included bird size metrics, more plumage illustrations and more information on habitat, but I love it anyway.
