Birdwatcher's Diary

iPhone • iPad • iPod Touch (also Android)
Checklist Software for Birders

Tap to record a sighting, marked as either seen or heard. The two-letter alphabet down the right-side lets you find the one bird you're looking for quickly and easily; no need to scroll through 100 birds starting with "W".

Date and time of each sighting and, optionally, latitude and longitude, are automatically recorded. Report the sighting, complete with a clickable map, to Facebook, Twitter, or your local birding listserve.

A user-editable "phrase list" makes adding notes to a sighting a simple matter of tapping, not typing, letting you get your eyes back on the birds as quickly as possible.

Display maps of your day's sightings at one or multiple locations directly on your iPhone or iPad. Export the information to create custom Google maps.

Output data for uploading to eBird, including automatic calculation of distance travelled and duration of outing. Easily share your sightings on Facebook, Twitter, or with your local birding listserve.

Create life lists from all your sightings, or filter the list based on a variety of criteria.

Export your sightings in a form which allows you to create custom Google Maps, displaying all your sightings for a trip in a form you can share with others, or review yourself in the future (click here to view this map live)
