iBird Species Names & Numbers List


Recommended Posts


Does anyone have a copy of the spreadsheet with the iBird corresponding species name and numbers?  There was a link to it on another thread but the iBird site is down.

Each year since 2015 I have kept lists of birds that show up in my yard on iBird.  The lists have disappeared.  I contacted support and got no response.  The iCloud backup files are horrible.  I am only able to open them with Notepad and it’s just a bunch of formatting.  But there are numbers that I think correspond to bird names on the app.  If I had that spreadsheet, I could figure it out.  I am kicking myself for trusting an app so much and not making my own lists.

It’s been a few months.  Is there anyone that can post a link to this list?  I still hope to rescue my favorites files.  

I'm not sure if you're aware @Amelia, but iBird is no longer supported for Android devices. If you're not using an iPhone or iPad, you likely won't find the support that you're looking for. If you've paid for the new subscription based app for IOS devices, you might be better off looking for support through the app itself. I don't want to be discouraging but these forums get very few responses from iBird representatives.

@lonestranger I have an iPhone.  I was in contact with a support person for a while but they were not able to find what I need.  I have iBird Ultimate.  I guess I could try going through the app support again.  I won’t update or pay for any new subscription because of this experience.  Thanks for responding.
