The award-winning field guide, completely redesigned
The Audubon Bird Guide is a free and complete field guide to over 800 species of North American birds, right in your pocket. Built for all experience levels, it will help you identify the birds around you, keep track of the birds you’ve seen, and get outside to find new birds near you.
With over 2 million downloads to date, it is one of the best and most trusted field guides for North American birds.
In a word, everything! We’ve completely redesigned the app to make it easier and more fun to use for birders of all experience levels. We’ve heard you loud and clear—you’ll now find it easier than ever to access the field guide, keep track of sightings, find birds near you with eBird, share photos—and that’s just the beginning. We’ll be updating our all-new app much more frequently, adding new features and refinements to make sure it continues to be your trusted guide to the birds you love.
All-new: Bird ID
It's now easier than ever to identify a bird you just saw. Enter all you were able to observe—what color was it? How big? What did its tail look like?—and Bird ID will narrow down a list of possible matches for your location and date in real time.
Learn about the birds you love
Our field guide features all over 3,000 photos, over eight hours of audio clips of songs and calls, multi-season range maps, and in-depth text by leading North American bird expert Kenn Kaufman.
Keep track of all the birds you see
With our completely redesigned Sightings feature, you can keep a record of every bird you encounter, whether you're hiking, sitting on the porch, or simply catching a glimpse of birds out the window. We'll even keep an updated life list for you.
