    It is a good app. If you are a birdwatcher, I think you will enjoy this app. However, I am taking a point off because the listing states that audio recordings of the birds are available in the app and there are NO audio recordings. I have many of the bird apps for my iPad and they all include audio recordings (of course they also cost a lot more than a buck!!). Hopefully the developer will add audio. When they do, I will definitely up my rating!

    Fun App

    I love to bird watch and this App will come in handy. I like that there is also a game, which is alot of fun. I would have given this App a 5 star rating if there were bird sounds for each bird. The information on each bird is very thorough. It would be a bit more helpful if the bird species names were also listed in alphabetical order rather simply by bird group. All in all this is an informative App.

    Few calls and hard to hear.

    Fair app. Calls not available for all birds and most are soft and hard to hear.

    Very nice, but ...

    Well done and inexpensive. I would have given it 5 stars but I bought it specifically to identify the many species of woodpeckers on my property. There are no woodpeckers in this bird app. If it is updated to include woodpeckers I will change my review to 5 stars.

    Many birds are missing from this guide

    Terrible app. Many varieties of birds are missing and the graphics look jagged and rasterized on a Nook HD. A waste of money.

    Not too bad

    Nice collection of birds. Most DO NOT have sounds however. Those that do: there is a loud "honk" noise at end of the sounnd. Add more bird calls, fix the "honk", pinch to zoom pic and this would be a 5 star ap.

    no bird sounds

    I thought this app would have bird sounds, since identifying the birds by sound is what I wanted, and was disappointed to find no sounds...

    Ok, but...

    Pictures are tiny and all the sounds have loud honking sound at the end of them. A lot of good information, though.

    I love this app. I love that it has a game. Only you often see those birds. So if it had different levels that would be great. But apart from that, this app is great
