  • Best bird app ever!

    By IndyDave47
    Birdseye is indispensable! The best thing is that it shows which birds have been seen IN THE AREA where you are visiting, and provides a bar graph of the number of sightings by month. So you can quickly narrow down which are the likely species that you have seen. It is crowd-sourced and linked to EBird (both from Cornell). The app also includes photos of the birds, but does NOT contain descriptions of the birds—its only weakness. But use Birdseye in combination with one of the apps (like Audubon) that provide descriptions. Also, Birdseye works all over the world, not just in North America. An amazing app that has revolutionized birding!

    The app told me most of what I was seeing around me daily, wherever I went in Africa. Extremely cool.
  • Great tool for locating birds

    Very handy when traveling and for monitoring migration. But not totally intuitive.
  • Not good for obscure places

    I’ve been to some obscure refuges lately. Unfortunately there weren’t many sittings listed, so the ap didn’t really help me.
  • Viewing eBird lists is broken

    First of all, the ability to view eBird lists when looking at the reported birds near me, is completely broken. It used to work fine but no longer does. For such a pricey app as this (you have to pay monthly as a subscriber just in order to use the app within your region - which is another expense), I expect the functionality of viewing eBird reports to be near flawless! Please please fix this major issue. I'll reevaluate my rating when fixed.
  • Essential

    Love this app for finding birds I need in an area and for finding good hotspot locations. Wouldn't leave home without it.

    I wanted to see what was available in this app and see if some of the common birds in my area were in the app but I would have had to pay to search even though it says the app is free. What if the birds I wanted to see weren’t listed? Then I would have wasted my money
  • Great

    Great to see what's expected in your area, or recent observations at hotspots.
  • This app is indispensable.

    Really disappointed that you can’t use it at all anymore without purchasing a monthly subscription pack.
