Warbler migration is peaking right now and this guide comes in handy for birders of all levels. The information about warbler calls and songs is especially useful, as are the various quick photo guides. Check out my review of this fantastic book here: Book Review: The Warbler Guide.
Entry for this giveaway is easy! Just visit the contest page for more details on eligibility and the super easy online entry.
The BirdsEye bird-finding apps also appear to be on sale, with deep discounts similar to the BirdLog apps. I have never really gotten into using BirdsEye but word is that the app has recently been completely redone so I am definitely going to give it a try at this great sale price.
The bird-song learning app iKnowBirdSongs is on sale in the iTunes store right now, priced at $7.99. The app is regularly priced at $9.99. This is a limited offer, so act quickly! The app includes songs of 371 species and gives you the ability to make your own sets of digital “flashcards” to aid in learning and remembering songs. Search for the app in the App Store on your device (iPhone or iPad) or look here for more information: iKnowBirdSongs.
Remember that August 30 – September 2 is the second Common Nighthawk Weekend of the year! The Common Nighthawk is the American Birding Association Bird of the Year for 2013. Go out and look for them this weekend! The above screenshots from the Peterson app are a good start. 🙂
Regional versions of BirdLog are on sale for just 99c each, through February 18th. The sale applies to both iPhone and Android versions. The promotion is in conjunction with the Great Backyard Bird Count which takes place next weekend. I think BirdLog is a fabulous app and this is a great sale. Birders, take note!
