“Having great fun sneaking up on birds and trying to capture them. Getting better at id as well. The messages to my inbox about photo quality and id tips are amazing.”
- Murnong (iOS user)

“After getting the hang of it, it is quite addictive and ruins my morning walk with the dog because i keep stopping to take photos of birds. Kids should love this, and it will get them outside, learning about nature but with incentive to do so (to top the leader board, get gold and equipment).”
- jksmits (iOS user)
