DIY Birding Database

I have been trying out Bento, a database program produced by
FileMaker. I am amazed how simple it was to make a database for
birding sightings. It took me about !.5 hours to produce it, starting
scratch to finished product, not bad, considering that I had no
previous database experience.
I recommend anyone with a Mac running OS 10.5x to download Bento and
give it a trial. The program is still in the Public Beta stage but I
couldn't find any problems with it. It is so simple that an old
dodderer like me can use it.
I have been using Wings and BirdBrain for my sightings, but it looks
like I will be switching when the final release of Bento comes out.
All I have to do now is work out how to port my sightings to it.
