Bird Listing Software Review
After nearly 5 months I finally completed an in-depth review of eight bird listing software packages using eBird as a baseline. In this comparative and systematic review I compared Bird Journal, Birder’s Diary, Birders Notebook, eBird, iGoTerra, Observation.org, Scythebill and Swift. This comparative reviewed focused on 1) Integration with eBird; 2) Taxonomic list support: 3) Data entry; 4) Reporting; 5) Mobile version; and 6) Noteworthy features. A summary of the results are being published on the Surfbirds website and should be available soon. The detailed review can be accessed here.

- A slightly larger (and growing) collection of photos can be found at Bird Nerd’s Flickr account.
