Peachpit has posted an article I wrote about bird watching and bird identifying apps for iOS: iPad and iPhone for the Birds

This is a great time of year to put up a bird feeder and start trying to identify your local visitors. The beauty of iOS bird ID apps is that not only are they portable (especially those on iPhones), they include color images and and bird songs you can listen to via a headset to help ID all those birds you hear and can’t see.

I notice the my personal favorite bird field guide, The Sibley Guide to Birds, is about to be released in a second edition; I have hopes for a similar update to the The Sibley eGuide to the Birds of North America – mydigitalearth.com iOS versions. Note that there’s a free “Lite” version too.
