Binoculars and field guides have long been the birder's primary tools. Binoculars help you get a better look at the bird. A field guide helps you identify it. But how do you know *where* to see those birds? Are you at the right place to share the beauty of the way birds look and sound with your family?

BirdsEye Lite is the indispensable new tool that helps you find and see America's favorite birds. With information about 135 species, BirdsEye Lite gets you going on an amazing birding adventure.

BirdsEye Lite guides *you* to your best birding opportunities by unleashing the collective wisdom of the thousands of local birding experts that contribute to eBird - the massive, real-time bird observation system run by the bird experts at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
