All Birds Netherlands - A Complete Field Guide to the Official List of Bird Species Recorded in the Netherlands

Mullen & Pohland GbR
*** Do you plan to go bird watching in Holland? Then this is the app for you: it is considered the best photo guide bird app for the Netherlands. Find information no other app has: bird population size NL, abundance NL, migration and breeding status - for all 500 species ever recorded in the Netherlands - incl. all vagrants! **NEW** – COMPARE Function! ***

Bird watching in the Netherlands? This exceptional app includes all species which have been listed by the Dutch Rarities Committee. It has been developed by passionate field ornithologists and published ecologists.

To quickly find a bird you are looking for, species can be sorted in several ways:

– A-Z bird names - choose between 19 (!) languages: Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Icelandic, Italian, Japanese, Latin (scientific), Latvian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, and Swedish
– the app is entirely in English
– Irregular visitors can be faded-in or -out

A simple identification key narrows the species down (e.g. by foot colour, bill shape, length of tail etc.) leading to the bird searched for and a choice of similar species. You can also look for fragments of a species name through a search screen – the search for “finch“, e.g., shows all the species which include the word „finch“ in the species’ name.

Despite the abundance of species provided: in order to precisely identify a bird no previous knowledge or ornithological expert skills are required.

Of decisive help here are the qualitatively high-class large-scale images which show all bird species in their natural environment and, amongst others, originate from renowned photographers of the wildlife agency SUNBIRD IMAGES. The pictures have been chosen from thousands in order to allow the most reliable identification of the birds. The choice of photos is essential for identification: Bird pictures which only show the bird from front, like it is the case for many of the sloppily developed apps on the market, are of little use for birders.

This app provides extensive texts and data for each bird species with information to:
Appearance, ecology, population size, frequency, habitat and much more. The texts for this app have especially been written for Sweden. This, amongst others, holds for population size, abundance, breeding status, local distribution etc.
