NSS Bird Guide App

After more than one year of planning, the Bird Group has released the "Birds of Singapore" iPhone App on Apple Stores for free download under "NSSBirdGuide". This is the first bird guide app for Singapore and the region. 

All the 375 species in the 2011 Checklist are featured, many with both sexes, juvenile and flying images. The images can be enlarged to cover the full screen by tapping on the photos. Pinching the enlarged photos will further magnified the images to show different parts of the bird. Apart from the excellent photographs, bird watchers will find the over 100 bird calls very helpful in the field. Quick searches include family views, abundance, habitats and quick text. You also can check for different groups like Raptors, similar species and compare them. An added feature allows for the listing of species for your own day, survey or census lists. Dates, time and GPS automatically appears with each entry. You can even share your sightings of individual species or lists with your friends by email or Facebook.

Many people contributed and helped to create this application. (See Acknowledgement page of the App). This App is made possible with a grant from the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) and sponsorship from Carl Zeiss Pte Ltd. Feedback regarding the App on our Nature Guides and Apps forum. is most welcome.
