The most popular printed field guide to North American birds is now available in its entirety on the iPhone and iPad!

**If you would like to experience the app check out the newly released Sibley eGuide to the Birds of North America LITE which is FREE and includes 30 species.**

We have taken the simplicity and ease-of-use that you have enjoyed on your iPhone/iPod Touch and expanded and redesigned the layout (not simply “stretching” it) to take full advantage of the larger screen area of the iPad while still being the same app that runs on the iPhone/iPod Touch.

The Sibley Guide to Birds has become the most popular and fastest selling printed guide to birds as well as the most comprehensive and authoritative guide to North American Birds:
Over 6600 images.
Every species is shown perched and in flight from above and below.
Shows every major seasonal, age, and male/female variation.
Detailed coverage of subspecies and regional variations.
Detailed maps showing not just winter and summer range but also migration and rare occurrence.
Detailed descriptions of songs and calls, comparing similar species measurements of length, wingspan, and weight for every species.

Now all of that information is available in an easy-to-navigate portable format on the iPhone/iPad. In addition, this version of the app also includes:
● Swipe to move to the next or previous species.
● One-tap enlargement of images and rotating the device expands images further.
● Over 2300 carefully-selected and edited sound recordings. Nearly all species are represented with multiple examples showing the range of vocalizations.
● The ability to compare any two images, maps, or sounds, side by side on the screen.
● The ability to filter by state/province, so that you see only the species likely to occur in your location, and to further reduce the possibilities to the most common birds in that area.
● The ability to search by distinguishing features such as size, prominent colors, habits, and group.
● A basic personal species list* that stores your sightings saved to the device with the ability to export the list using email or iTunes file sharing.

*Uninstalling/reinstalling the program will result in the loss of your list, it is recommended that you keep your own backup (master list) separate from the application.

NB. This Application WILL ONLY work on an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch running iOS V6.1 or higher NOT A NORMAL IPOD CLASSIC/NANO and the download is about 400MB.

Buena Applicacion para aficionados

Sólo faltan muchísimas especies, sobre todo accidentales de América central, de zona de Florida faltan unos cuandos, ya se pudieron añadir en las próximas ediciones, y incluir las en una actualisacion!! Con el precio que tiene la App., podía llevar esto. Calidad de los dibujos rasonable, descripciones muy muy cortos. Por último me encantaría encontar me con mucho mayor facilidad este tipo de App. En el centro de App.! En Europa cuesta trabajo encontrar la. ¿Y que tal sí se publica una versión en más idiomas? ¿Que os parece poder tener la en español, francés y alemán?

Pretty good

I was alreday using the iBird Pro which is very user friendly along with the Aububon. Each of the previous offer their plus and minus. It is possible to display two birds at the same time to compare them or to get lists of birds by province or state as you travel outside of Quebec.

Guide Sibley

Cette version électronique du guide Sibley est bien faite et complète. Japprécie linclusion des chants et des cris ainsi que la possibilité de comparer deux espèces. Je la recommande sans hésitation.

Comprehensive & Handy

So far the Sibleys app for iPhone and iPod Touch is pleasantly easy to used and is as comprehensive as his time-tested field guide. The added library of bird calls adds significantly to this useful electronic field tool. It would be nice if a selected grouping of species could be compared in succession. The only frustration is the limited list making capabilities of this app. Since the i-Apple platform is proving so successful for equipping hand-held devices in the field, it stands to reason that a comprehensive list-making app with export capabilities should be readily available. The question is, will this Sibleys app accomodate it with an update NOW? Or will somebody else sweep away the market? Its time to act.

the sibley eguide to the birds of north america

really good ... especially the bird song audio, 3 or 4 different bird songs for most birds to help with identification ... also good illustrations and maps.. well worth it

Facile dutilisation

Très fidèle au volume que je possède déjà, mais tellement plus pratique à utiliser sur le terrain. Je le recommande à tout amateur doiseaux.


I find that iBird Explorer is much nicer than the Sibley guide. IBird has better, more detailed drawings, and more information. Also, there is a glitch in Sibleys note function: it automatically records the date on which you write the note, but that is not necessarily the date on which you saw the bird... I changed the date and saved but it went back to the wrong date anyway...
