Dear All,

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.
