Ratings and Reviews
Works well until it loses your data
This was the best of several apps I downloaded for keeping a birding life list. However, just when I was getting comfortable, I had to replace my phone, and when I restored my apps from my backup, this is the only app that wouldn’t reload. All my bird list was lost...nearly 300 species with sighting dates. So sad! Not sure if I should even start again, or find another service.
I've tried several apps for recording bird sightings, but this is by far the best I've tried. Easy to use, and organized in a way that is intuitive for someone who just wants to keep a catalog of birds they have seen.
Great Bird Tracker
Great way to keep track of the birds I see in my backyard. I'm not very good at identifying birds, so I do rely on other apps for identifying, but this was the easiest for keeping track of my sightings.
