Description

NATURE IS FOR EVERYONE
With Birda, anyone can get outside, identify and record the birds they see, and share them with a fun and inclusive community. Modern life pushes us away from nature. Start pushing back.

Birda is not your typical bird identifier app, it also connects the global community of birders irrespective of how they already record their sightings! Simply sync or import your records from eBird, Merlin Bird ID, iNaturalist, Birdtrack, Birdlasser, and more to get started.

Stay motivated by joining challenges and making new friends - it’s free! Don’t know a bird? Use the global field guide or tap into the community and use HI (Human Intelligence) to identify what you have seen and grow your birdwatching & ID knowledge faster. Help protect nature by turning birding into a fun adventure. All with the help of a free bird app. Cool, right?


WHO IS BIRDA FOR?
Birda is a free bird app & community for anyone curious about nature and birds, no matter your level of knowledge or previous bird watching experience. We want to help you enjoy birds, so you are inspired to fight to protect them. If you like fun & nature, Birda is for you!

Have fun using your smartphone as a powerful tool to help conservationists protect a myriad of bird species. To get started:
1. Download Birda, it’s free!
2. Head out, head up.
3. Log your bird sightings - one at a time or multiple sightings as part of a birding session.


CITIZEN SCIENCE
Your bird sightings have a direct impact on helping conservation, so all that time in nature is good not only for you but also for the planet. Birda sends all of the sightings data it collects to the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) so that scientists can use it to understand more about the world’s bird species and their habitats.


YOU CAN ALSO:
• Find birding locations & the bird species that occur there
• Use the field guide to identify what you have seen with reference images and bird calls
• Set birding goals
• Get bird identification suggestions from the community
• Help the community as a bird identifier
• Unlock achievement badges
• Take part in challenges
• Automatically create bird life lists
• See what birds other users have spotted
• Log sightings even when you’re offline
• Choose from multiple taxonomies (IOC, Clements & Birdlife HBW)


IMPORTS & EXPORTS
If you are coming from another platform, then there is no better way to get started than to import your records to Birda. We currently support imports from eBird, Merlin Bird ID, iNaturalist, Birdtrack and Birdlasser, with more coming soon. If you want to move your records to another platform, you are free to export all of your sightings from Birda.


LIFE LISTS
Birda automatically creates life lists of all the birds you've imported or recorded on Birda. Birda automatically generates sub-level lists based on time and geographic location. For example, you can see all your bird ticks for the last month or year and your home and patch lists (regions, countries, states/provinces & nature reserves coming soon!).


TAXONOMY
We understand that taxonomy can be complicated! This is especially true when people are trying to compare species across taxonomic authorities. For this reason, we built an industry-first solution to simplify taxonomy for our users. Our taxonomic engine makes taxonomy seamless, allowing users to view each other’s bird sightings in their taxonomy of choice, irrespective of what is being used by other users.


PRIVACY
You can choose to create a privacy zone around your address to automatically hide the location of any sightings you post in your garden. This privacy feature prevents you from disclosing your home address when logging sightings around your home. Set up your home location, and Birda will also automatically create Home Lists and Patch lists for all the sightings you post within your Home and Patch boundaries. You have full control over what posts and GPS coordinates you share with others on Birda.

WHAT'S NEW

We’ve worked on performance improvements and bug fixes to keep your birding experience smooth and enjoyable. Happy birding with Birda!
