Product Reviews

“Beyond speed, the brilliance of the new Bird of North America phone app is the audio. For most entries, from albatross to wren-tit, you can listen to the bird calls. In a nice touch, the audio includes hammering sounds for woodpeckers. Listening is much easier than figuring out what a print author means by a ‘low chup,’ and an excited ‘zeeee chuppity chup.'”

Chicago Tribune

“Not only is the app chock full of reference material and birdwatching tips from the Audubon Society, but it’s also a multimedia library with thousands of photos and bird calls.”
