In case you missed it, the free Audubon Bird Guide: North America gives you a mobile field guide that’s updated to the current AOU checklist. The app includes 821 species; advanced gallery view for easy comparison and search; field mark call outs; a “Find Birds with eBird” feature powered by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology; and a social community of birders who observe, identify, and share their observations and photos in the mobile app and online. And did we mention that the app is FREE?
