BirdsEye for Android coming this Fall!

One of the most frequent requests we've gotten is When will BirdsEye come to Android? Finally we have an answer.  I have energized the final stages of development and plan to have BirdsEye available for Android 4.2 and above in the Fall of 2014!

Building an Android version of BirdsEye has always been a big priority for us, even though it has taken us much longer than expected. The path to BirdsEye for Android actually started several years ago, when we began building the new BirdsEye for iOS in a way that we could easily expand to Android. BirdsEye for Android is important for many reasons, as it supports our mission of promoting bird science and conservation through the eBird project.  Android is is essential for reaching young birders, and birders in the tropics and getting them engaged in birding and the eBird project.

What is BirdsEye?

BirdsEye is a powerful new field guide, powered by eBird data from citizen scientists around the world, synced to your lifelist, packed full of fantastic photography and built for mobile.

✔   See which bird species are being seen in you immediate vacinity using your phone's GPS and data on sighting reported to eBird for the date and locale.

✔   Most birds have photos and sound recordings of songs and calls - new images and sounds are being added nearly every day!!
