Another free app for bird watchers from India!
Bird Explorer India
The app identifies all the likely species that can be seen at the current location based on the distribution maps from the Grimmett Inskipp field guide. It also allows you to explore the birds at the location by further filtering on criteria like season
and size, and viewing their images. The user can choose a different location, and explore the birds that can be seen in that place. This can be particularly useful when you are planning to visit a place.
The app also lets you log all the birds that you have seen during a field trip. This feature is similar to the eBird app from Cornell Lab of Ornithology, except that we cannot submit them directly to e-bird. This feature is planned to be added in the future.
The advantage with this version of the logger is that you will see ‘only’ the bird species that you can see in India. The names of the birds also will be as per the Grimmett / Inskipp field guide.
