Gave iBird Plus a run for its money yesterday. Six hours of birding over at the local reservoir and then down raptor road. I have a way to go using the search feature to identify birds. It seems like it should be easier than I am discovering it to be. In each instance when I had an unidentified bird, I was unsuccessful in locating it using the iBird Plus search feature. When I posted the picture on our local birders site, our resident expert was quick to make the identification, and sure enough the particular bird is certainly within the iBird Plus library. VERY handy if you can find, or know the identity of the bird you are seeking to identify further. Time and patience, like all this iPhone stuff is turning out to be, and I'm sure I'll come to love the program.
1. Is there anyone else here, who uses this thread in this forum?
2. What have been the experiences with this particular version of iBird?
I'm a novice birder, but have some experience with our backyard feeder bird identification. I havn't missed one of those, but the shorebirds were real problematic. I'm just not that familiar with the individual identification characteristics of those birds.
