Yet another bird list program has appeared, Scythebill. It is a cross-platform 
program, running on Mac, Linux, and Windows. Some of the features are:-

Full Clements checklist, including all subspecies and groups (courtesy of the 
Cornell Lab of Ornithology)
And IOC World Bird List support, including (almost) all subspecies. Flip 
between the taxonomies instantly - no need to choose just one.
Fast species entry ("make up your own banding code"), including over 7000 
alternate names.
Fast reports - instant processing of hundreds of thousands of records.
Simple, clean UI.
Export to EBird, and import from Avisys or eBird.
Arbitrary location hierarchies (e.g., if you want to keep track of "Lower 
Willows" at the "New Willows" on "Point Reyes" in "Marin County" in 
"California", go for it.)
Enter hybrids and "sp."s (Willow/Alder Flycatcher, for example).
Further details can be found at

I have not tried Scythebill yet, but will certainly investigate it further, 
when I get the time.
