Unlike many apps out there, Birder’s birds aren’t angry and don’t use hashtags, they’re the real thing... 

Combining a Field Guide and Field Report for birds of Britain and Ireland, Birder is the ultimate birdwatcher's toolbox with all the information you need to identify and report the birds you find right from your mobile device.

More than just a list, Birder includes beautiful, original artwork for 247 bird species, specially commissioned for the app, so you can spot with accuracy. 

Users can also listen to high-quality call and song recordings for each bird and read concise text descriptions and identification guidelines all from within the app. 

And there’s more to get your claws into.  
Not only can enthusiasts identify birds with Birder but they can also create Field Trip reports complete with automatically updated location data, notes and sightings. Field Trip summaries can then be shared, stored and viewed on maps to create a complete sighting record.
