BirdTrack is a tool designed by birders that makes it easy to log what you see wherever you go birdwatching. Once you have set up a free BirdTrack account at www.birdtrack.net, you’ll be able to upload your observations to the global database, allowing you to make comparisons with your own and other birders’ records. At the same time, your data will be available for use in research and conservation at the local, national and global scale.
Version 2 is a major upgrade to the BirdTrack app. It has many great new features, including global bird recording and a choice of taxonomies, and more features will be added over time. There are considerable changes from Version 1 so we recommend that existing users make a full back up of their device on iTunes (including all apps) before updating.
- Log your bird sightings from anywhere in the world.
- Flexible taxonomy: choose from multiple species baselists including the International Ornithological Congress World Bird List, the BirdLife International Complete Bird Checklist and various regional and country-based options.
- Offline mapping and observation recording, enabling use in places with no data connection.
- Existing BirdTrack users can access the same set of personalised places on both the web and mobile devices.
- ‘Smart’ species dropdowns for adding your sightings, offering species in order of the most-frequently recorded for the current location.
- Simple +/-/circa buttons to easily add and modify species counts during your birding visit.
- Optional sighting details including breeding evidence, remarkable and sensitive record settings.
- Seldom-recorded species, high counts and out-of-season sightings flagged during verification to alert you to possible data entry errors.
- ‘Targets’ feature to show the most-recorded species that you’ve yet to log this year or ever.
- Designed to be translatable into most languages; if yours isn’t yet supported, contact the developer.

What's New in Version 2.1
Thanks for your feedback on the BirdTrack 2.0 release. We appreciate the time and effort you have put into contacting the BirdTrack team to help us identifyand resolve the issues you encountered.
This update addresses a bug that caused problems with uploading, and standardises the summary data between the app and the website:
1. Uploading records with '&' in the comments fields – comments fields can now contain the '&' and successfully upload the observations.
2. Summary information now matches the BirdTrack website – summary information is now calculated in the same way as on the BirdTrack website.
3. Improved localisations – support for Dutch and Spanish locales is now provided.
Other information that may be useful:
1. Users wanting information to appear in the BirdTrack UK and Ireland portal (rather than the BirdTrack global portal) should select the ‘BirdTrack Legacy’ baselist.
2. Country summaries are based on the baselist for the country.
3. UK and Ireland summaries are based on the BirdTrack Legacy baselist.
4. Global summaries are based on the International Ornithological Congress baselist.
