Why birdJam

Most "birdJammers" report that they enjoy birding more and identify more birds because of birdJam. birdJam iPod TouchWith birdJam, you're tapping into five years of innovation and a community of thousands of birdJammers. You're getting a proven product backed by dedicated birders who are focused on creating, delivering and supporting the best technology for birding.

birdJam is simple and fast. Every aspect of birdJam focuses on delivering the highest quality songs and photographs for fast access at home and in the field. If it isn't helpful, we don't include it. When birdJammers go into the field, they most often take their binoculars and birdJam iPods—more often than their field guides, cameras, cell phones and spotting scopes.

birdJam delivers quality. Our bird song collections are renowned for the variety of songs, sounds and chips, their length (with many species having 30 seconds or more of sounds), and their quality. Click here to hear samples of our great songs that include multiple sounds, calls and chips. 

To reinforce your learning, our definitive photographs were selected because they most effectively show diagnostic field marks.

birdJam organizes and formats the songs/photographs for you. With birdJam, here's why you'll be out in the field instead of spending weeks at your computer.
