If you are a keen bird-watcher, you will no doubt have some way of keeping records of sightings and the species that you have seen. Indeed, there are already a number of packages available for varisous platforms that can help you to do this. (We already have listers for a number of countries for Android.)

BirdLister is a powerful, modern, extensible list manager for Desktop computers. Written primarily in Java using B4J, it is currently available for Microsoft Windows computers, but will be made available for Apple and Linux systems in the future - it already works on these systems, but we don't have the system access needed to properly package them yet.

BirdLister offers a wide range of features and functions for the keen birder, some of these include:

  • Downloadable lists for countries and regions
  • Unlimited sightings per species
  • Unlimited images per species
  • Comprehensive statistics on each region/country
  • Google Maps Views
    • See all sightings for a species plotted on the map
    • See all sightings for a country plotted on the map
  • Life list agregation
  • Multiple input modes
    • Classic Tick List
    • Detail Screen Sightings
    • Quick Sightings
  • Internal world list allows vagrants to be added
  • Some countries have distribution maps
  • Customizable display options
  • Powerful search options
  • Extensive export options for lists, records and imagery to PDF and CSV for further processing
  • Backup & Restore country or database to ZIP

Birdlister is free for private, non-commercial use. Country lists are also free, however we would always welcome a donation by Paypal if you find the program useful. The donations will help to support further development of the program and also the creation of additional country lists.
