*** This app fills a gap in the region and is the only bird app available for Colombia! ***
Do you plan to go bird watching in Colombia? Then this is the app for you. It is based on the renowned reference work of the Helm Guide Series "Birds of Northern South America" by Robin Restall, Clemencia Rodner, and Miguel Lentino. The creation of apps from the book is a co-production between Bloomsbury Plc and Sunbird Images.
*** The app contains 5,600 illustrations and more than 4,000 bird songs and calls in total ***
The Dutch Birding Journal writes:
"Would I recommend this app to anyone going on a birding trip to Colombia or one of the other countries in Northern South America? For sure! ..., you will be provided with a load of information, a nearly complete set of bird sounds and a few useful tools and features for use in the field for relatively low money."
Ferdy Christant finds:
This app is a good replacement of the field guide. It’s actually better. Its information is more complete and accurate, and it can do things a book can’t: search, compare, identify species, listen to songs.

Colombia is the “Land of Birds” with vast natural richness and a number of natural superlatives. With its nearly 1,900 species it covers about 20 % of the world's bird species population with 78 endemic species covered in this app.

Narrow species down by foot colour, bill shape, length of tail etc. leading to the bird searched for and a choice of similar species. You can also look for fragments of a species name through a search screen – the search for “finch“, for example, shows all the species which include the word “finch“ in the species’ name.
