Description

Make quick and accurate identification of the birds around you with the intuitive and simple to use Peterson Guide to Backyard Birds. Now with 180 birds (nearly 50% more than in previous versions), and search functions by name or family, this app for your iPhone or iPod Touch can help you easily identify more of the birds you see regularly - whether overwintering, breeding or migrating through. Thanks to our many customers who told us what they wanted, this latest upgrade has a number of new features including a robust line-up of common and not so common birds in the area you select and search functions. Whether you want to identify birds at your feeder or the ones you see on a trip, you will find the authoritative Peterson images, range maps and full text about each bird and informational text for families of all the birds in the app taken directly from the latest edition of the best-selling Peterson Field Guide to Birds of North America. Plus there are brilliant crystal clear bird calls for each bird as well as a way to filter the list of birds to find those in the geographic area you want. And, our popular quizzes - of either sounds or sounds and images – help you hone your bird identification skills and quickly master the ability to identify birds by sight and sound. Use the search function to look for a bird by name or look for them by family group. Each family header has information about the birds in that group, and you can add each bird you see to your own personal checklist. With this intuitive and easy to navigate app, your list will grow quickly!

Here’s what you get:

• NEW MORE BIRDS! 180 popular birds found in the continental US

• Peterson bird images with Peterson Identification System arrows pointing to key field marks –pinch to make them bigger for greater detail

• Beautifully recorded birdsongs and calls for every bird

• Peterson range maps - pinch to enlarge

• NEW! Peterson’s full descriptive text for each bird and general information for every included family.

• NEW! Search birds by name or by family

• Quizzes using the birdsongs and Peterson art to help you identify birds by both their songs and by sight, including scores and correct answers

• Personal checklist to keep track of all the birds you have seen

• Filter the list of birds in the app by geographic area so you can choose from the most commonly found birds in that area, making identification a breeze. Just select any area in the continental U.S. by touching the map OR the 1st two numbers of a zip code, and see commonly found birds in, overwintering, nesting and migrating through that area.

”Roger Tory Peterson was an innovator, as evidenced by the publication of his groundbreaking Field Guide to the Birds in 1934. If he were a young birder today, he surely would have been at the forefront of birding technology, embracing the digital possibilities available to us now, " says Lisa White, director of guidebooks at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing. "His mission was to educate as many people as possible about nature, and the availability of his work on a mobile platform through Wildtones serves to further that goal and carry on his legacy."

A NOTE FROM THE PRODUCERS:

No sound? Is the mute button on the side of your handset muted? Are the sound settings set high enough to hear the sound?

If you have any questions or issues with this app, please contact us directly at support@wildtones.com as we rely on your specific comments and requests as well as issues you encounter to continue to improve the product. We can’t promise to include every suggestion, but we will do our best where possible to include your suggestions in future releases. Thanks again for your support. Happy birding!

Great Upgrade

:
Wow – what a great upgrade! So many more birds that I am starting to learn new ones I never knew anything about! It’s like a whole new app! I loved it before, but now I can search for birds I want to know about and I can look for them in groups as well. This helps me a lot when I am trying to learn which birds are which as I can see the group silhouette and then read information on each group of birds. And it is all exactly the same text that is in my Peterson Field Guide book. It’s just so easy to use this app rather than have to remember to take my book with me. I also love being able to use the map and choose where I want to see the birds from. Being able to select a geographic area really helps narrow down the choices, but the list in each of the zip codes now is really big! They must have added not only a lot more birds overall, but also in each zip code. Thanks so much – this app is sooo great!!

5/5 stars

Amazing!!!

:
I just downloaded the latest upgrade to the Peterson backyard Birds and I am so excited to see how many new birds there are and all the new features. This is a really wonderful app and I find I use it all the time. Really handy and it has pretty much all the birds I need. I like watching the birds in my backyard and trying to identify the ones I see when I am out. It’s still the app I use the most. My two kids are always asking for my iPhone to listen to the birds. Educational and entertaining rolled into one!

Responsive Support and My Grand Daughter Approves

:
I bought this application over iBird Explorer as it looked like just what I wanted to use with students. However, each time I use the Zip Code look up and click on a bird, that is the image that shows up for all other birds that I choose. The bird song and other information changes but not the bird image. This of course renders the app useless for identification.

That is what happened the first time I tried to use the application. I wrote this review and contact Wildtones support as well. I am VERY HAPPY to let all know that they got back to me with in 24 hours and told me to reboot the iPod as that will often fix issues like I was having. I should have thought of that as well:(.

After doing so, the application works perfect and my grand daughter and I had a great time listening to and learning about birds this past weekend.

Bravo for great customer service and a wonderful application.
