You don’t need internet or cell service to use Merlin. You download the “pack” you need before you go, and it works totally offline.
As to books, I like Mullarney et al., but I don’t know if there is anything newer and better. Kevin From: Carol Cedarholm <cceda...@gmail.com> Sent: Thursday, June 30, 2022 5:18 PM To: Kevin J.

I wonder about internet access in more remote parts of Poland. On Thu, Jun 30, 2022 at 4:37 PM Kevin J.

It’s really handy when traveling in a foreign country where you don’t know what is common and what isn’t. We used it constantly on a trip to Spain a couple of years ago.

Can anyone recommend a bird guide book and app for Europe? Also, can anyone recommend areas to bird and individuals they know who could guide us once there?
