The Warbler Guide App, featuring 3-D Images

Tom Stephenson and Scott Whittle’s landmark The Warbler Guide, published last year from Princeton University Press, was widely considered to be one of, if not the, finest family-specific guide for any group of North American birds. In his review for Birding magazine, Edward Burtt said:

This is a wonderful book. The many, many photographs are superb, and they illustrate the text clearly and abundantly. The text is concise and broken down into bites that precisely explain each illustration. The authors are to be congratulated for their many insights into the identification of North American wood-warblers, and Princeton University Press for reproducing so many excellent photographs so very crisply.

This is a book that every serious birder should own.

One of the most exciting aspects of this exciting book, was the clever way in which the authors used spectrograms, various icons, and an incredible array of photos of warblers from every angle to offer the birder a ton of useful information.

Their app is equally unique, including 3-D renderings of warblers allowing you to see what the birds look like from any and every angle. It’s pretty cool, and we’re excited to share a sneak peek at some of the artwork that has been created for the app.


The app is scheduled to hit the Apple store soon. This is only one stop on The Warbler Guide App trail. For more information see Birding is Fun, Drunk Birder, Warbler Watch, and tomorrow, 10,000 Birds.
