The PIZZEY AND KNIGHT BIRDS OF AUSTRALIA DIGITAL EDITION for Android is a comprehensive and interactive
application that combines multimedia data on over 900 Australian bird species with seven interactive modules for every
aspect of mobile birding*.
The app can be used as a FIELD GUIDE (like the book) or as a BIRD LIST, with essential functions such as view bird page, play the sound, add to your list and view similar birds available directly in both.
The FIELD GUIDE displays the full field guide pages of the book. You can browse the pages and identify a bird, play the sound, add to your list, and open the Bird Page for further detail.
The BIRD GUIDE includes a full bird list and individual BIRD PAGES for over 900 Australian bird species, with illustrations, species text, distribution maps, photographs and sounds.
The BIRD LIST includes all the new species and new names, with functions for Bird Page, Play Sound, Add to List, Similar Birds and Field Guide Page. You can also select regional lists, and names from IOC, C&B, Birdlife and Clements lists.
SIMILAR BIRDS loads a list of birds similar to that selected. COMPARE BIRDS displays the bird pages side by side for direct comparison.
IDENTIFICATION uses location, habitat, bird shapes and plumage to shortlist possible species for identification.
MY LOCATION is an interactive map for finding your current location, generating bird lists for your location, and locating birding sites near you. Or tap for a new location, get GPS co-ords and load a bird list. Or tap a birding site to get a list or open the site description.
MY LISTS is a personal list manager that includes a life list and sub-lists that report to your life list. You can also sync your lists to Google Drive, and export lists for backup. Sighting details include place, date, GPS co-ords, and sighting notes.
BIRDING SITES includes descriptions of 270 birding sites from around Australia, with photos, bird list, and weather forecast. "Show on Map" loads Google Maps for directions and navigation to the site.
The MULTIMEDIA DATA includes • over 250 field-guide pages • over 900 individual bird pages • all the ‘new’ bird species and names • over 2500 illustrations, 4000 photos, and 700 bird sounds • colour-coded distribution maps with seasonal status bar and endemic and red data species indicated • new rare bird maps.

Great information but finding it is difficult. The app is confusing and hasn't been updated in 3 years. What's the difference between Field Guide and Bird Guide and Bird Identification? What are the different bird names sorting? I would expect to be able to save photos to my personal list of birds I've seen, but this basic feature is missing. Many complaints and answers, but nothing is done to actually fix the problems. At this price it's not ok. I regret buying this app.
Very good bird identification app, excellent images for ID.
Great app IF it is working. Crashes about every second time I use it (since my phone was new), and recently started crashing every time I use location to create a species list. Now stuck on the registration page and wont open at all. Samsung S11. P.S. I don't need a snide reply from the developer on how my phone needs an update - save yourselves the time!
Can't extract the data. Asks for my registered name but doesn't accept it and keeps asking
