Audubon Birds App Trailer

Audubon Birds App Trailer

This is a great app by Audubon. When it first loads, a beautiful Snowy Egret pops up. I have this app on my Nook, though I wish you didn't need wifi to load the pictures.

There are seven options on the "front page". The browse by shape option is pretty cool! Some examples are Hummingbirds, Owls, Tree-clinging birds, and Duck-like birds.

The glossary and "encyclopedia" is nice! I quite enjoy it...

Pros

  • Quick reference
  • You can add your bird sightings to it
  • A few taxonomic mistakes, but doesn't effect the quality
  • Nice glossary
  • Describes the birds well

Cons

  • You need wifi in order to access pictures and such

  • Taxonomy: Star full Star full Star full Star full Star full Star full Star full Star half RTL (7½)

Though the birds aren't in TiF order, this app has caught up to Wikipedian standards. Wrentit is in Paradoxornithidae; Bananaquit is in Thraupidae. Pelecaniformes only includes the pelicans while tropicbirds are in Phaethontiformes and are closer to pigeons/doves than to pelicans; cormorants, darters, frigatebirds, boobies and gannets are in Suliformes. If they had put tropicbirds in their own order, this would be 8 stars.
