Birda Community

Head out, head up

Birda provides a free, easy-to-use tool for logging the birdlife around you. All you have to do is head out and look up.


Add one sighting at a time or multiple sightings as part of a session.


By keeping a record of what you’ve seen, and when, you’ll be helping bird conservationists to gather the vital data they need to protect a myriad of bird species.


With Birda, you can connect with nature, learn more about it, and give back at the same time. But that’s just the beginning.

An inclusive

At Birda’s heart is a friendly and inclusive community of curious nature-lovers just like you.


If you’re ever unsure of which bird you’ve spotted, simply upload a photo of your feathered friend and the community will help you identify it.


Use our bird app on your own, or with others. Birda offers a fun new way to spend quality time outdoors with friends and family, connecting with nature and each other.

“We were new to the UK and new to birding. With Birda my family and I can now accurately ID multiple species in our neighbourhood, the park, and on countryside walks. My kids collect sightings like they used to collect Pokémon!”

Michelle, Kent


“I love nature and birds, but I’m turned off by the usual birdwatching community – I don’t fit in! But with Birda, a really feel part of a great community!”

Laura, Yorkshire


“Birda has been a game-changer for my mental health. I have mobility issues and rarely leave my house. But now I sit in my garden or at the window, identifying birds on my feeder, and feeling part of the world again.”

Peter, Suffolk
