We have decided to remove our three iBird HD apps from the store. If you own any of the iBird HD apps (Pro, Yard Plus or Lite) they will remain in the store for you to download anytime. But the apps will not longer be for sale to new customers.
In the next month we will be releasing a new app that will take the idea of High Resolution performance to a much higher level. This new HD app will only run on the iPad, e.g. it is not a universal app like our iBird product line. The new app has extraordinary features that go far beyond any mobile field guide app on the market. We think of it as the next generation of bird guides. This new uber app is designed not to compete with iBird; but rather to complement it. And therefore we won’t be using the iBird name in the app’s title.
We think you will be blown away when you see it. And we can’t wait to release this new app and find out what you think. Of course we have to wait, because the app must be approved by Apple. But we believe it will sail through the review process and that even Apple will be impressed.
- Location search has two attributes: Common for the most popular species in a state and Uncommon for rare and state listed birds.
- Attributes are grouped into basic, head and flight related area.
- 14 new search attributes including search by patterns, length, wingspan.
- Updated state and province bird lists using official references.
- Shake your device to automatically play a random bird song.
- Taxonomic and Alphabetical family sort options on Browse screen.
- More than I’d dreamed of ★★★★★ This app has everything! Filter by feeder, flight, song, and more. Then by state. Then by common or uncommonly seen. Has print of bird, multiple pictures of each one, as well as all the bird’s calls! More than happy and amazed! -iwordboy
- Identify Birds ★★★★★ We were looking for an app to help us identify various birds that come to our feeder here in Texas and we thought we would try this app. It has blown us away with how good the app is and how many ways there are to help determine the types of birds. We love playing the bird songs as another help. This app has far exceeded our expectations and beats just using a book. Thanks for an amazing app!!! -Ting&Mark
- Great birding app for iPad ★★★★★ iBird Yard for iPad is not only a great bird app but a great iPad app as well. The database contains most common birds and displays great information, stunning illustrations, and links to photos on the internet. It is a great way to identify or simply browse for birds especially for a novice like me. One of my favorite features is the ability to listen to calls of each individual bird as there is nothing more comforting than playing the Chickadee song at work. -isnowed
- iBird Yard for iPad ★★★★★ iBird Yard for iPad is a must have for the backyard birder or even birding in the field. The updates have made this app so easy to use. Searching by name or attribute makes identification a breeze. The detailed identification and ability to keep notes, make this a very functional app to have in your birding gear. The help section is outstanding, giving very detailed and easy to understand instructions. If you only have one birding app, this is the one! -arnnieb
- Keeps getting better and better ★★★★★ Hard to believe, but iBird Yard keeps getting better and better. The enhanced illustrations are incredible! The search functionality is the best, and the sound library is outstanding. With iBird series I never carry a “dead tree” field guide out in the field anymore, these are better not only can I do a parametric search, like specifying what state I am in, the primary color of the bird, aand size and iBird then presents me with a list of possible suspects. But it gets better. When looking at a particular bird I can also see “similar” birds, these two features make identification very very easy.
Lastly I want to say that the folks at the Mitch Waite Group are incredibly responsive to feedback. I submitted a few suggestions a while back and I see that most of those were incorporated into this version.
This app is a MUST buy for any birder, actually it’s a very compelling reason to buy an iPad in the first place. -Juan Pons

- Geekily Excited about iBird Yard ★★★★★ I read a review of bird apps in the NYT and they recommended this one for birds around the house. I’m glad I listened. Fantastic app. Easy to use. Great information and gorgeous illustrations. I grab my iPad 3 or 4 times a day to check birds and facts about birds. Cool search function with link to birdpedia. Buy it. You won’t be disappointed. -MichiganMurf
- IBird ★★★★★ What a great combination iBird and iPad make. This is so much easier and faster then going through printed bird books. And having the text, drawings, and photos so easily accessible really is convenient. Easy to recommend iBird. -Jeff Mellody
