1B. AOU 2017 iBird Updates

Recommended Posts

If you've used other birding apps you may wonder why they are not updated very often. The reason is that the number of changes coming from the birding standards organization (AOU and ABA) has grown significantly. Much of this is do to new classification discoveries from DNA research. We at Mitch Waite Group have strived to keep up and this new update is no exception. However we do not blindly copy every change the AOU makes. This story explains our philosophy and shows you the over 100 changes we have made for iBird 10.06. It also provides a place for you to discuss our decisions and let us know your opinion. Maybe there is a bird you wish we did include?
