WORDS AND BIRDS
Here are two nifty references to add to your toolkit ~
Google Translate ~ when your high school French fails you, or when you just have to have that perfect word in Finnish. This app translates back and forth among 70 languages, plus you can store key phrases in your very own phrasebook.
Audubon Online Bird Guide ~ alas, this is not free, but is available as an app for your iPad, iPhone, Kindle, Nook, etc., for $4. The guide includes tips for beginning birders, bird anatomy, identification field markings, range maps, and a section dedicated to conservation and endangered species.
