The Best Bird Watching Apps To Identify Every Breed

Even the most experienced bird watcher often comes across a species he or she can't quite identify. In these cases there are a plethora of resources to help identify the bird in question. In our opinion the best way to do this is on your iPhone. Not only do these apps provide a "dictionary" of bird breeds for you to swipe through, but many of these apps even help you find them. Please note, these apps are for identifying birds by looking at them. We have a separate guide all about identifying birds by their sounds, so don't expect to find those apps here.
