Like a lot of other people I have a number of hard copy bird guides and wondered how the Audubon Birds (AB) app would compare with the printed page. It does and quite well! Being a birder and photo hobbyist helps me appreciate the role of lighting, focus, and depth of field when photographing birds - including the birds in the app. The AB app on my Nook Tablet is a valuable tool to have on weekend bird photo trips or when at-home for study or just for delightful browsing. And, the ability to enlarged bird photos, even given the photo issues mentioned above, aids in making identification easier. Five Stars!

Do the people who review this app actually use it on a NOOK?
The font is TOO SMALL...it is not readable. It gives me a headache looking at the tiny thumbnails and the microscopic print. I asked other people what they thought, and they agreed...it is unreadable. For $14.99, they should have done better. I have the iPad version of this particular app and it's fine. It's as if they didn't even consider the smaller screen size of the Nook before they made it available.

    Bird Lover's Dream

    This is an excellent reference tool with detailed information and descriptions, pictures and sounds. I have not had time to access everything this app has to offer, but love what I have seen thus far. Audubon would be proud.

    Highly Recommended for identifying birds

    Loaded it as an app on my Nook. It's fantastic. I see a bird I don't recognize, quickly locate a few possibilites. If possible I play some of the audio's to see if the birds respond. If they do I've confirmed my ID. Best bird reference I've ever used.

    Excellent for New Birders like me

    I am having a lot of fun with this app. I took my Nook to a park and sat near some American Coots and played their voices. They really reacted to it! There are a lot of ways to identify birds through the app, and I've found my favorite methods. Hope you also enjoy this app and have fun with it.

    I'm really sorry to read that some had trouble with this app. It does take awhile to sync, but I think it's fabulous. My 8 year old grandson is just starting with birding and would not have the patience to look through a book, but he loves this, especially the voices.
