Mobile users can have more than 800 bird species right in their pockets
Check this out!                 

       The National Audubon Society recently released an updated Audubon Birds Pro mobile app available via iTunes, Google Play and Amazon.  And get this -- it's free!

  • Listen to up to eight hours of bird calls, differentiated by region and season. 
  • Access robust seasonal and migratory range maps. 
  • Browse species in a gallery view and filter by shape, region and color, aiding quick identification. 
  • Use “Find Birds with eBird” to locate birds seen recently in the vicinity, drawing on the continuously updated database from the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology and eBird
