iBird Yard Plus Guide to Birds has 270 species of North America. It is designed specifically for the 126 species of garden and yard birds found in North America and Hawaii and an additional 144 species of common birds most birders are likely to see such as ducks, hawks, seabirds, etc. If you are new to birding, iBird Yard Plus is an inexpensive way to become intimate with these amazing creatures. Just set up a small bird feeder in your yard and start discovering the beautiful species that thrive in your area. iBird Yard Plus is completely up to date with the 2017 AOU supplement and contains hundreds of bird songs and calls you can play from the app to attract birds to your feeders. Birders with more experience may want to review our iBird Plus, Pro and Ultimate products. More Details of What’s New: bit.ly/ibird-whatsnew iBird Yard Plus also takes a major leap forward with “Time of Day” filtering available in version 10.06. You can now search for birds by activity levels during day or night (Cathemeral), dawn and dusk (Crepuscular), during the day (Diurnal) or during the night (Nocturnal). Also included in this version is our new Owls of Mexico and Central America package, including all the hard to find details which iBird is so well known for: illustrations with field marks, range maps, songs and calls and much more. With iBird’s Percevia™ matching system you can search for birds by color, location, shape, habitat or any one of 37 identification attributes to find your bird. iBird's comprehensive species pages have hundreds of built-in bird song recordings, professional high-resolution bird photographs, hand-drawn composite illustrations and range maps with detailed migration paths. ** NOTE: If you would like to try out iBird without spending any money, check the newly released iBird LITE Free Guide to Birds of North America. It contains all the features of paid iBird Ultimate, including BAM, but contains just 50 species. And it’s completely FREE. ** Whether you are an experienced birder or a beginner, iBird Yard Plus is the best way to learn all about the birds in your garden.

  • Great app!

    By Pimados Mom
    I love this app and have used it to call in some of my favorite birds. Easy to use with great photos.
  • Unbelievable

    By You are awesome and amazing
    I love this easy to use app with more than 100 species of bird. I enjoy this app so much even when I'm at dinner. This minute learning app is just incredible.
  • Awesome

    Use it every day Spring to Summer👍
  • Sound stopped working with iPhone X

    By Slthome
    I updated my app to use with my iPhone X and now the sound no longer works. I works in my old iPad, but not the new iPhone X. Annoying.
  • Love this app

    By 2 stars will not submit
    I like the multiple ways to ID a bird-shape, color, sound, area. These feathered friends are sometimes fleeting or hidden and reveal only a hint on who they are. A lot of work goes into creating a good database.
  • Good App

    By Carpodcastman
    This app is really good for identifying the birds that come in my yard. I especially like using the the slideshow of the favorites list to learn to distinguish similar-looking birds. Sounds also help with this.
  • ??? What the heck

    By Wren107
    By and all most of the Ibird guides are great. This one shows birds for my ares that do not show up here except under very , very rarely times and does not show birds that are common. The White pelican does not show up down here often but the Brown pelican is very common. This guide shows the white here but not the brown. I can go on with others but I will not now
  • Complete and easy
