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.

Budgie Bird Sound Effects - High Quality Bird Calls of a Parakeet

Budgie Bird Sound Effects - High Quality Bird Calls of a Parakeet

APH International

The budgie, or budgerigar, is most commonly referred to as the more generic term “parakeet” in the United States. The wild budgie is similar to the birds we see today in pet shops, though smaller (between 6 and 7 inches long), and only found in the nominate color, green. Its Latin name means, roughly, “song bird with wavy lines,” which is a pretty good description of this popular bird.


App Features:

- 5 amazing sounds available!
- alarm settings
- Loop & overlap sounds to create new ones
- Record Your Own sounds feature available
- Star your favorites
- Make these sounds your ringtone or alert sounds

Wingtags

Wingtags

The Royal Botanic Gardens & Domain Trust

The tagging of wildlife is conducted as joint research projects between the Royal Botanic Garden and other institutions (e.g. University of Sydney, Australian Museum, Western Sydney University). Our aim is to assess the size of study populations, individuals site-loyalty and movements within (and beyond) the study region. We will also investigate wildlife behaviour, particularly in association with breeding.

If you see tagged wildlife, please report the tag number and location with this app.

Our mission is to understand the ecology of wildlife populations. Gaining a greater understanding of wildlife ecology means that we are better able to live alongside with native wildlife in general. Planning for both humans and wildlife in cities, agricultural and bush habitats is important for conserving the diversity of our native wildlife.
