■ Share and Print List and Observation Reports. Print any of your Lists, Checklists or individual observations to any printer on your WiFi network or share lists or observations on Facebook, Twitter, Email or by a Text Message.

iBird Journal saves observations of birds with incredible detail. It seamlessly integrates with Mitch Waite Group’s iBird - the world’s most popular line of field guide apps – but can be used with any field guide app. Here is how it works: After you have identified a bird species, simply press the journal button that is found on all species pages. The iBird Journal app starts and opens an “observation” form for the species you started with. Journal does most of the work for you by auto-magically adding your GPS location, the date and time, the weather and more. It’s up to you if you wish add more information or do it later. And Journal is the perfect app for doing “bird counts”, such as the Audubon Christmas Bird Count or the Great Backyard Bird Count.

iBird Journal not only lets you memorialize your bird sightings, it does it in an extremely efficient manner by storing data in a built-in SQLite database. Journal has built-in tools for analyzing your observations and it can export to Excel so you can analyze your observations later using any kind of reporting system.

CHECKLISTS
Most important Journal goes beyond any sighting app on the market by letting you create “checklists” of birds you would LIKE to see. Checklists are perfect for bird outings, tours and bird counts where you know what you are looking for but need a way to instantly check off those birds from a pre-made list.

SOCIAL SHARING
Journal is perfect for sharing observations on social networks – it will share your discoveries on Facebook, Twitter or by email. You can think of iBird Journal as the ultimate rare bird alert app.

REPORTING
The reporting feature in Journal lets you analyze your entire database of observations by date range, list, locations, minimum observed count and species – answering questions like ‘how many times have I seen the Black-necked Stilt between April and June of 2010 in California”?

BACKUP
You’ll never have to worry about losing your observations as Journal will back up and restore your observations one of three ways: by email in its native format, to and from any free Dropbox account or as an eBird compatible CSV file. And if you are a heavy user of eBird you can import any eBird CSV into Journal and from then on use it to send and receive eBird sightings.

iBird Journal is the perfect app to keep a record of all your bird sightings and the ultimate way to memorialize your hobby for the future.

▶ Journal is a “universal” app so it works perfectly on iPad or iPhone.

▶ No limits to number of observations.

▶ Checklists. Besides basic lists Journal's checklists let you set up birds you “wish” to observe and check them off as they are found.

▶ Integrates with the entire iBird product line but works for any birding app.

▶ Reporting feature allows unlimited ways to view your lists.

Whether you wish to keep simple lists of the birds you see everyday, start a list of birds you see in the backyard, on a trip or every bird you have seen in your life, iBird Journal is the app you have been waiting for.

Note: iBird Journal is not compatible with the iPod Touch since it lacks a GPS chip.

Customer Reviews

Archaic

The eBird csv import from Dropbox no longer works. I just get a "spinning" wheel and nothing happens, even after 10 minutes. All of the manual importing and backing up is getting very old. There is no iCloud support. You cannot pick multiple locations on the map when performing a search, you must use the list view which makes it very difficult. Another annoyance is a lack of species variants and sub-species. For instance, inputting Dark-eyed Junco gets you the normal info and picture of the bird. However, after importing my eBird data, which was only possible on the previous app version, I get a blank picture because the app doesn't recognize Dark-eyed Junco (Slate-colored). This would have been a great app 5 or 6 years ago, but now it's archaic.

Useful & Time Saving Tool

So far I've found this to be an incredibly useful app. I love that it links directly to the iBird app (regardless of version), allowing you to look up data on the bird you are listing. The main issue I've run up against is more of an OS problem I think - I want to Export my files to eBird but am unable to do so from my iPhone (it won't let me select the file, a problem I've run into repeatedly with other programs as well). So iJournal is currently exceeding my expectations.

Practical and Easy to Use

Expensive, but well worth the $ for me. I've started bird lists before, but never kept them updated due to misplacing them or just not having them when unexpectedly needed. I've tried a couple cheaper apps, but they were much tougher to manipulate to what I wanted (life list, home list, vacation list, etc.).
