App Reviews

  • Essential birding tool

    By agami
    Love it for trip planning, county birding and big year birding
  • Basic necessity for birders

    By Ustream.TV Watch
    Every serious bird watcher needs this app. There is nothing else like it. It works beautifully. It also pairs well with Daily Bird. I use this app every day at least once. I have had it since it came out.
  • Great app

    By ebreilly
    I have about 4 birding apps on my phone, but this is my go to app time and time again. Favorite feature is being able to easily see what "notable" species have been seen nearby and from there link to a map to see/navigate to location!
  • Love it. Use it in the field and at home.

    By Sjgplays
    I'm really enjoying this app. The pictures and audio are fantastic. The descriptions are a little too brief for me but I have plenty of books for that.
  • Nearby birds is so helpful

    By JGG414
    I use the "nearby birds" search very frequently as I travel. Incredibly useful!
  • Great app to help know what's around

    By Labwatchdog56
    I use this app to find what's around me; help solidify ID and especially when I'm going to new locales... what's being seen & where. In June 17' I was in Seattle and NW of there , seeing birds I had no idea what they were, I photographed them then used this App to help ID. A week later in Texas, it provided some great Birding locales for me to see & photograph birds. Always keep the code of ethics in mind when Birding or using eBird.
  • Good app

    By J.m.r.h
    I enjoy using this app to see what is nearby and to keep up with my lists. I do use it occasionally to help with identification. The downside to this app is that it seems to really drain my battery. But that may be because I often use it in conjunction with ebird.
  • Disappointed with Service

    By Dozedog
    I bought Birdseye a long time ago for $20 and used it with great admiration to its capabilities. However, the app got deleted on my phone and upon redownload, it said I needed to pay a membership fee every month to get all the birds I used to have. Incredibly disappointed to have been a long time user and enjoyer of the app only to be screwed over. Thanks BirdsEye
  • Birdseye is extremely useful

    By 9602880
    My wife and I use this all the time when birding.
  • Excellent app for bird watching.

    By DonJG210
    This is one of the most informative, useful, and enjoyable mobile apps one can bring on a birding field trip.
