For Windows PCs, EnjoyBirds is for identifying birds - a portable Digital Illustrated Field Guide for planning bird trips by making it easy to learn appearance, field marks, sounds, habitat, range, and even elevation preferences.

By using geographical selection (Geo-choice) on a map, you can pick one location, elevation and season.  You create your own custom bird ID guide for one spot (called a UserBook), to identify the actual species likely encountered at that season on your trip.

 

EnjoyBirds being used on a small field computer to identify bird species at home or in the field.
