To all those who responded to our email on a checklist like the simple BOCA blue booklet :
First, I didn’t realise that the following was sitting in my outbox until today when I was doing a response to Mike Jarvis :

~~~~~Thanks for all the responses.
We are simply looking for a compact Australian bird checklist such as the BOCA one.  We understand that many are happy with the technological approach, but something that is small and compact that does allow for a trip/annual record to be made with pencil would be great.

Yeah, g’day Mike
Thanks for your response to our email on a checklist.  Ken Black also referred us to your booklet.

However, all we are after is a simple list of names with boxes to tick birds off.  For our purposes, the little blue book is ideal, but we’ve used them all up.
I’ll keep fiddling and set up a list of our own and make our own version.

I would really like a hard-copy pocket-size checklist.
 I don't have any kind of smart phone and i can't find stuff on e-bird.  A print-out on A4 is too big to handle in the field.
 I keep records with a pencil in a basic paper notebook.
 I really miss the little blue Bird List.  It was great for keeping a score over a trip, with a new column each day or each location

At the risk of stating the obvious, eBird?

The little blue book put out by BOCA was a great way to keep your sightings recorded. Is there any chance that it, or something similar could be produced?  Or does anyone know of something similar and where to get it?
