Learning to identify birds can be daunting. Let’s face it, they don’t sit still, they’re often tiny, or far away, and they sometimes seem to look exactly alike. What’s more, the American Birding Association (ABA) Checklist includes 1,112 of them! That’s a lot of birds and a lot of potential confusion.


BIRD GENIUS helps you learn to identify birds and get acquainted with them up close. The flashcard method remains a proven tool for learning, and this app will be useful for beginning birders, ornithology students, or anyone who simply wants to improve their ID skills. Experienced birders, meanwhile, will find it surprisingly fun to test themselves. Addictive, even.


Another notable feature of BIRD GENIUS is the quality of photographs included. (From compensated photographers, by the way.) These passionate artists spend countless hours in the field and pursue their art in the hope of spreading an appreciation of birds and the habitats that support them.


The ABA Area roughly includes the United States, Canada, and their offshore regions. If you’re in this area—or thinking about visiting—this app is for you! The BIRD GENIUS team will be working on other parts of the world soon!
