A new era! A free BirdsEye Upgrade for the original BirdsEye for iOS released today! If you are using the original BirdsEye, please take a moment to read the blog post below about the changes. This upgrade that finally brings BirdsEye in line with the new BirdsEye NA. There are many positives (bar charts, more species, updated taxonomy, eBird list sync, favorites, etc), but also a couple of negatives to be aware of.

If you like the new upgrade, we would really appreciate you taking a moment to write a positive review. As always, your feedback and comments are welcome.

It's fun to see good coverage of BirdsEye, especially when it is thoughtful and smart like this article from Diane Doyle for her "Tools of the Trade" column in the latest Birding Magazine published by the American Birding Association:

If we can just figure out how to pass the Bible, we'll be in spot #4!

it's fun to see the Merlin app take off. Based on the Bird ID algorithm developed by Birds in the Hand, we worked in partnership with the Cornell Lab to build the Merlin app.

It's free, so if you're interested in birds check it out. It is perfect for novice birders and is easy for kids to use.

If you do, please take a minute to rate the app. :)
