The guide is available as an app for iOS and Android devices. With more than 2 million downloads to date, the app is one of the most trusted field guides to birds in North America. Cost: Free

Plus: John J. Audubon’s The Birds of America is a stunning collection of prints from life-sized watercolors that Audubon produced between 1827 and 1838. The Audubon Society’s website abounds with treasures from this book: free high-resolution downloads of all 435 plates, MP3s of each specimen’s call, and vintage commentary on science in locutions of another age. Bird lovers can explore Audubon’s Birds of America by chronological or alphabetical order, or by state, and download all of the images for free.

Plus: Audubon pioneered the idea of citizen science with the first Christmas Bird Count. Today the longest-running wildlife census in the world continues to shape and inform The Audubon Society’s approach to conservation. Educators can explore The Audubon Society’s science education initiatives online.
