What is the best mobile bird identification tool?

I'm a novice at bird identification and want to participate in the eBird "backyard count" but it appears that the eBird app is only to create a list and not to aid in identification.

There really isn't a "best" bird ID app. It's more a matter of personal preference.
There are a number of good apps available; Sibley, Peterson, NatGeo, iBird and Audubon for instance. Some have "lite" versions that you can download for free to see if you like the interface before buying the complete version.

My first choice, whether you have a photo or just a description, would be the new Merlin Bird ID app (
When using the GBBC portal (but not the regular eBird portal), each species is hyperlinked to an ID page for additional photos and information.
The eBird website and eBird Mobile can be used year-round.
