Birding Resources & Tools
Below is a collection of awesome Bird resources and tools that I rely on to learn, locate and identify Birds. They also provide collaboration and social opportunities with fellow bird watchers!
LIST of Bird Watching and Education Resources & Tools
Our goal is to gather this information in the form of checklists of birds, archive it, and freely share it to power new data-driven approaches to science, conservation and education. At the same time, we develop tools that make birding more rewarding. From being able to manage lists, photos and audio recordings, to seeing real-time maps of species distribution, to alerts that let you know when species have been seen, we strive to provide the most current and useful information to the birding community.
Sibley V2 Guide (Phone App)
The app based on the Sibley Guide to Birds includes all of the content in the printed guide as well as over 2800 audio recordings, additional text, complete seasonal status data for every species in every state and province, hundreds of searchable criteria, and much more.
iBird Guide (Phone App)
Whether you are an experienced birder or a beginner at birding, iBird contains 946 species of both native and rare North American and Hawaiian birds, is completely up to date with the 2017 AOU and ABA checklists, and is the only app to offer both illustrations and photographs.
