About Birding App

Birding App is the birdwatchers search engine which has over 10.000 species included, with information about the birds and off course the sound and images of the birds. A wishlist / checklist functionality has recently been added.

The bird images can be zoomed so as a birdwatcher it can be used for identification of the birds.
All the information in this app is based on the Avibase world bird database (

Birding app is also a multilingual app so you will search for birds in your language, and the information provided about the birds is also in your own language.

App highlights:

- Info about allmost all the bird species in the world
- 16.000+ images (all under a common creative license)
- 10.000+ birds with a sound sample attached
- Search by Latin bird name or the name in your own language
- Birds in the search result will be shown sorted by rarity in your own country, most common on top
- The country to focus on in the search result will be detected but can also be manually set
- Habitat map present for about 200 well known birds
- Wiki information for 7000+ species
- A wishlist / checklist is added to keep up with what species you have on your wishlist, with the ability to check the ones you have seen

Planning a birdwatching vacation and want to know specific information about the birds of Europe, North-America, South-America, Asia, Africa or Australia? Species from all over the world are provided.

At this moment a internet connection is required to load the content so the app is designed for those who prepare or evaluate a birding trip (or have internet at the birding location)

This app can be of great use for anyone who:

- Likes birdwatching
- Needs to lookup bird information
- Wants to play bird sounds of any bird species
- Wants to keep track of bird species he wants to see and which he ever spotted
- Wants to identify birds. Important to know: identification should be done by searching birdnames. Other apps that are ment for bird identification are more effective for this purpose.

by N####:

Well g i'm looking at a bird no info in my head so how can i type in a name it's a bird?

by J####:


by R####:

Ideal for twitchers old and new

by A####:

Very good app but would be even better if you could search by international name, and/or you could find directly name translations into other supported languages.

by Z####:

Photos inaccurate, eg Song Thrush pics....4 pics, 2 are song thrush one is a dunnock and the other a mistle thrush. Under the mistle thrush entry, they have 4 pics of a redwing! Back to the drawing board!

by W####:

If you have added some options to search like: Hawks, Kingfishers , ducks etc. Then I would be rating this app full five

by D####:

This badly needs a bird browser otherwise it only benefits those who already know the names

by V####:

Needing to know the name of the bird to do ANYTHING entirely defeats the purpose. You can't even browse the birds without typing in a name.

by U####:

Please added a option for offline checklist

by Z####:

Pretty good, UI could be prettier but the functionality is great. For free this is unbeatable.

by W####:

I tried this app in Italian (my mother tongue). It's wonderful! A lot of results, with subspecies which I never heard about. The possibility to reproduce the call of the birds, and watch their photos, is must for a birdwatcher. Sometime the search is a little too slow, but apart that, I really like this app.

by D####:

Very good app for searching thej world's bird species. Especially now with the last update to show local birds at the top of the list.

by K####:

But offcourse its my own app, hope you all like it too. Any feedback is more than welcome
