    Very Highly Recommended - a must addition to your bird guides

    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!

    Waiting for more...

    Audubon bird takes awhile to sync but, well worth the time. The photos are outstanding. Range maps and descriptions very useful. The bird sounds are excellent. Waiting for MUSHROOMS! TREES, WILDFLOWERS, INSECT & SPIDERS and also AMPHIBIANS

    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.

    I'm a-diggin this app!

    I've waited so long for this and I am not disappointed! I'm a huge birding fan and have been frustrated with printed field guides. I bird by sight and by ear so having ther advanced search features AND songs and calls right here in my Nook is going to make birding so much more enjoyable. Once I identify the bird, I can add it to my life lists with a touch of a button.

    Photos are stunning, and there are so many of them! And, while I have not fully investigated it, I see there is a feature for sharing sightings online so others can come enjoy your birds and you can go sight theirs. We will be traveling out of state later this year, and I look forward to being able to search on birds specific to that region and maybe hook up with other birders who can give info about specific sightings.

    Next on my wish list - Audubon bugs, flowers, trees, fungus.....

    Great on nook Color... will not load on HD+

    Audubon Birds is awesome on my nook Color but I cannot get it to load on my new HD+. I hope this can be fixed soon. When I go hiking (2-3x a week) I use this app a lot. All of the Green Mountain Digital apps are great.

    Most Excellent! Better than expected!

    Thrilled with this app! The bird songs alone are fantastic. I read the reviews first, and decided at $2.99 what did I have to lose? It took about 40 minutes to load, the descript. Did say about 1-hour. And to have a good Wi-fi connection; so I set my nook up 4 feet from the router to be sure! I also 'invested' in an added 8GB memory card for my NOOK TABLET- 8GB to be sure to handle all the features, as suggested by other reviewers. So far, so good! This APP does it all. Helps you identify birds; gives other similar species suggestions; pointers on identifying marks for indiv. species; several calls & songs per species; life list options, trip list options, and/or location options; places to add a note to a sighting; beautiful photos of males, females, breeding & immature birds... Equally useful for avid birders and backyard sighters. The convenience of this NOOK APP is worth it! ENJOY!

    NOT GOOD!

    I would like to give this app a good review; I cannot. I did not find the raven and magpie common to the Salt Lake, UT area, I observe near my cabin. I found the organization tedious, and very difficult to locate species. The interface, like the return button, is confounding, to say the least. Pictures are great, if you can actually find the bird you seek from the lack of good catigorization of species. Or, like my case, not at all. I will stick with my Sibely paperback guide, which I've never failed to easily classify a bird with, till they market their new Nook app. SOON I HOPE! One Star to offset all higher opinions...

    Excellent birding app, regret nook has no mic

    Love the pics, song audio and range info. Search mechanism is good doesn't always sort as I would expect but better than thumbing through books. Similar bird function opens up multiple options.

    I REGRET COLOR NOOK has no mic; it appears there is a function to search by bird song input. For those with tablet or smart phone I think it would be worth it for that alone.

    OK, but misses some key species

    I thought this app was pretty good until I tried to look up a common raven. It does not seem to exist in the database. Curious because a Chihuahuan raven is included.

    Horrible! Don't waste your money!

    I was really excited to get this app. I even went out and bought an sd card since it was recommended. However the app keeps failing and has to force close. I get so frustrated! I wish I could get my money back!

    BORING

    If you already know the name of the bird but it is not like you just see a bird and you can look it up. An OK app to use to hide behind your back and make a bird call to scare your friends.

    Totally Unsatisfactory

    The title and the review is strictly based on my own experience. I was under the impression that if I click on my location, the app would show me the various birds found therein. Instead, it shows me locations of the birds habitat and I have to search for the birds by name from there on. If I were an experienced bird watcher, and can tell from just the shapes what they are, or could be, this app would be fine. But for a newbie, like me, it's frustrating. In addition, the bird calls are barely audible even with the volume turn way up. No, I would not recommend it. That's just my opinion, though.

    Love this!

    Am pleased with the number of beautiful photos! Also the sounds have helped me identify a number of birds I hear but cannot see. Has definitely been worth it for me on my Nook Tablet.

    Love it but please fix it!

    I too am a bird lover and love this app. But I have had problems with the advanced search feature causing a 'force close' every time I use it. I have tried reinstalling. The company has been of no help. This was an expensive app $14.99, when I bought it. A week later it went on sale for about 2.99 if I remember correctly. If they would resolve the force close issue it would be 5 stars!

    Evertything works great except in the advanced search the microphone button in the upper right corner, when pressed makes the program to force close. Is there a fix for this?
