Covering the islands of Mauritius and Rodrigues.
The App contains a wealth of detail including photographs, songs and calls, text and maps to help you enjoy and identify the special birds of the islands. The App is primarily a field identification guide which includes the capability to record and upload sightings to a central database as well as allowing the user to maintain personal checklists.
The App is an asset of the African Bird Club and is free to download from both the Google Play Store and Apple iStore. Go to the store and search on Birds of Mauritius and follow the installation guidelines. It has been tested on a variety of Android devices including Samsung Galaxy S7, S8 and A8, and Tablet A6, and Apple / IOS devices including iPad, iPhones 5S, SE and 6S.
Mauritius is the first country to use the African Bird Club App. Birds of Mauritius will serve as a pilot for future Apps for other African countries and, in time, the whole of Africa. User feedback will be much appreciated therefore. The APP is expected to be used by ornithologists, birders and others with a general interest in birds.
