I tried using J-Bird as well, but gave up, it was just to clunky.
With Bento, I loaded an Australian list, based on the list Dave
Sargeant posted on Birding-Aus, as a drop down menu. The loading of
the list was a simple cut and paste.
I have thought of using Eremea, but I am a bit reluctant to place all
my data in a database which I have no control of backing-up off the
data. Does Eremea have a good back-up of the data held on it off-
site, or is it possible to back-up your data held on Eremea your self
for your own archiving?

My experience with J-Bird, a free database, is that the program is
just half of it. Getting a decent master list into it can be a
struggle, especially if you want a world list with the names of the
Australian subset matching what we commonly use.
Maybe I just didn't know where to look, but I found myself getting
more deeply into taxonomy than I ever expected to.
It was good fun, but I was spending too much time on it, so I ended
up using Eremaea's online database instead - now they look after that
side of it for me.
