Product Description

iBird Lite 2 is a great bird reference app for ornithological fans. It contains entries on 30 birds and includes 50 illustrations, 127 photos, 58 audio recordings of bird calls, 30 range maps, and thousands of facts to help you identify some of the most popular birds in North America.

Each drawing is hand drawn and full sized, with perching and flight views. Multiple professional photographs show plumage, sexes, and seasons. Zoom and pinch the portraits for viewing fine detail. You'll have access to extensive behavior and habitat information, including diet, egg color, band codes, and much more. If you want to know even more, you'll be linked to Flickr photos and detailed Wiki pages for each bird. You'll also get an extensive glossary of bird terms and definitions.

Note: No Internet connection is required to use the app. However, the large database of bird illustrations, photos, and sounds must first be downloaded from the iBird server, so a fast WIFI connection is required.

Please use iBird Lite in the field responsibly. The American Birding Association's Code of Ethics, particularly section 1(b), is suggested reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice but... December 21, 2011
By Bartski
Verified Purchase
This was a nice product... What do you want for nothing? Don't bother and just go to the full iBird Pro 2 version. This one has 30 birds. The Pro 2 version has 964 birds. This one costs $0. The full version costs $4.99. You do the math! The full version will overshadow the best of the field guides out there.

2.0 out of 5 stars Does not run on BlackBerry 10 March 25, 2014
Verified Purchase
I tried to "buy" this App (it actually a free one), to run as an Android port on my BlackBerry 10 device. Unfortunately, although it downloads and installs, it won't run on that platform. Android Apps will normally run on BlackBerry 10 devices, but not this one. I tried to contact the vendor, but have had no reply to date.

3.0 out of 5 stars Covers Very Few Birds, Covers Them Well, But... January 17, 2012
I don't know how to rate this except to say it's kind of like a trailer for their iBirds Pro2 which is the epitome of what an App should be. I am so enamored with iBirds Pro2 - same company - that I didn't even mind when the price was halved. I use iBirds Pro2 almost daily. See THAT review to find out what this one is missing ... like 800 species.

It is a good app to test out if you are not sure about purchasing a full version. I want to learn to ID bird calls and songs. It offers a lot of information for the birds covered but, unfortunately, that is not a lot of birds. I thought there would be a broader range of common birds included. What do you expect for free? I think the paid version of iBird will be well worth the money.

Verified Purchase
this app is really a wonderful way to judge ibird products. I mean its free so it has its limits but it helped me to see how I would like the ibird products that I have to pay for. I have ibird2 on kindle and ibird3 on my android phone...love them all.
