Thanks Stewart,

For iPhone users information I am trialling the "My Birding Observations"
App. Which is a bit like Birdsight but covers the world and can be uploaded
to Birdstack and eBird. Also they have an Eremaea upload in the pipeline. Or
would it be easier for Eremaea to adjust the way it imports??

I shall let you know how I find it if you are interested.

A few additions to Frank's excellent summary of the program.  


I also use Wildlife Recorder but use the accessory mobile software Pocket
Bird Recorder on a PDA to input trips into Wildlife Recorder.  I find this
to be easier than entering them into Wildlife Recorder.  Pocket Bird
Recorder integrates with the built-in or external GPS of your PDA, Palm or
Android (upcoming) device, storing GPS co-ordinates in the field .  You can
also store multiple GPS co-ordinates for the same location, e.g. if you were
on a pelagic trip and wanted to enter multiple gps locations under a single
title.  Unfortunately I have not heard talk of an iPhone app at this stage.


I rarely use a notebook these days - I enter the trips, locations, times &
species into Pocket Bird Recorder on the PDA and then sync with Wildlife
Recorder on my desktop, at which point I have access to all of the features
that Frank has mentioned. 


If you're going birding in a different state or country, you simply upload
the relevant state or country list to the PDA from Wildlife Recorder and get


I've been very happy with the combination of Wildlife Recorder and Pocket
Bird Recorder.
