The most popular printed field guide to North American birds is now available in its entirety on the NOOK Family of Devices by Barnes & Noble!

The Sibley Guide to Birds has become the most popular and fastest selling printed guide to birds as well as the most comprehensive and authoritative guide to North American Birds:

* Over 6600 images.
* Every species is shown perched and in flight from above and below.
* Shows every major seasonal, age, and sexual variation.
* Detailed coverage of subspecies and regional variations.
* Detailed maps showing not just winter and summer range but also migration and rare occurrence.
* Detailed descriptions of songs and calls, comparing similar species measurements of length, wingspan, and weight for every species.

Now all of that information is available in an easy-to-navigate portable format on any Android device.
Includes the following functionality:
* Swipe to move to the next or previous species.
* One-tap enlargement of images with extended zoom functionality.
* Over 2300 carefully-selected and edited sound recordings. Nearly all species are represented with multiple examples showing the range of vocalizations.
* The ability to compare any two images, maps, or sounds, side by side on the screen.
* The ability to filter by state/province, so that you see only the species likely to occur in your location, and to further reduce the possibilities to the most common birds in that area.
* The ability to search by distinguishing features such as size, prominent colors, habits, and group.
* A basic personal species list that stores your sightings saved to the device (ability to upload list coming soon)*

* Uninstalling/reinstalling the program will result in the loss of your list, it is recommended that you keep your own backup (master list) separate from the application (application provides backup/restore functionality in "My List" page)

    Brilliant

    At last a great birding guide comes to Nook! It is just what you would expect from David Sibley, his stunning art work combined with great features like bird calls, range maps and so on. There are a variety of search features to aid everyone from the beginner or casual backyard birder to serious enthusiasts. It is easy and intuitive to use. It is a an essential addition to a digital birding library. It seems to be a good investment.

    Awesome app. I have used the Sibley guide for years and now I have the added bonus of audio! You can't go wrong with this app.

    Text size too small !

    Was surprised no photos but excellent diagrams showing all the different markings etc on male, female, juvenile and different parts of the country both static and in flight. While you can enlarge the size of the diagrams you can not enlarge the text or the maps, this is a major problem for me. Minimal written information. Lots of great sound samples. Overall I am happy to have this guide but I do see room for improvement.

    Great book

    I like the interactive features (bird calls, enlarged pictures, and the bird log). Only gripe is that some of the birds I have seen are not included in this book.

    Great book! Bird calls amazing!

    Very easy to identify birds from this book. Granddaughter thought a live bird was loose in the house. Sounds so real!
