Collins Bird Guide
This application has always a place on my devices because of the beautiful illustrations.

The Collins Bird Guide App combines world-class illustrations and comprehensive information with intuitive design to create the ultimate field guide for passionate birders and casual birdwatchers alike.

The app is based on the landmark book by Lars Svensson, Killian Mullarney and Dan Zetterström, universally acknowledged as the standard European field guide.

Use the powerful search filter and curated confusion lists to focus in on a species. The Collins Bird Guide App is an essential companion always to hand on your device.

Features include:

  • Over 700 European species covered
  • 3500+ beautiful illustrations by Killian Mullarney and Dan Zetterström
  • Detailed text covering habitat, range, identification and voice by Lars Svensson
  • Record sightings, location and date with the listing tool

About Dirk Beckers
Dirk Beckers is a hobby wildlife & nature photographer living in Antwerp (Belgium). Fujifilm is mostly the gear I prefer but sometimes Nikon has a place in my bag. Aside from some exposure, sharpening, noise reduction and basic colour corrections, I don't spend much time post-processing my photos. I believe that good photographs are accomplished outdoors, in the field, and not in front of the computer. That's the essence of my photography. Click here for more.
Bird Identification
Please be aware that I'm not an expert in Ornithology. I'm using Merlin app from The Cornell Lab for bird identification, but if you think that there are still some mistakes with the names of the birds, please feel free to contact me. I will be happy to make the necessary corrections!
