What People are Saying about Audubon Guides

“Beyond speed, the brilliance of the new Bird of North America phone app is the audio. For most entries, from albatross to wren-tit, you can listen to the bird calls. In a nice touch, the audio includes hammering sounds for woodpeckers. Listening is much easier than figuring out what a print author means by a “low chup, and an excited zeeee chuppity chup.” — Chicago Tribune
