★★ BirdLog is the only Android app for recording and submitting your bird sightings directly into eBird while in the field! ★★

Forget about notebooks, pencils and sitting at your computer. Transform your bird sightings into eBird submissions to build your own lists while sharing your sightings and supporting conservation.

You’ll enter more lists with BirdLog and enter them more accurately. It is easy to tally birds as you go—and thus counting them more accurately, automatically capturing the time and duration, and using the device’s GPS and map interface for greater precision of locations.

BirdLog was developed by active eBird users as a power app for submitting data into eBird. If you are not already familiar with eBird, we recommend that you visit and register before using BirdLog the first time.

Here's what some birders are saying about BirdLog, the only app for directly submitting sightings into eBird from the field:

★ “BirdLog will fundamentally change the way we go birding,” Chris Wood, eBird Project Leader.

★ “I enter more checklists simply because it’s so easy, and still have more free time at home. I’ve waited for in-the-field data entry for years,” Marshall Iliff, eBird Project Manager.

★ “The ability to record real-time bird observations in the field and have them flow directly into the eBird database has huge implications, not just for birders and eBird, but for citizen-science in general,” Brian Sullivan, eBird Project Manager.

★ “BirdLog is stunning in its simplicity and efficiency. I now enter my almost daily observations in the field with greater accuracy in time, date, and numbers,” Ohio eBirder.

BirdsEye BirdLog is the exclusive mobile data entry app for eBird that allows you to:

✔ Plot the exact location of your sightings using your phone's GPS

✔ Create new personal locations or choose an existing hotspot or personal location for your checklist

✔ Create checklists even when there is no cell coverage to later submission to eBird

✔ Enter birds quickly and easily as you see them using bird codes or full names

✔ Scroll and review your checklist before submitting it

Our company is committed to birds, the birding community and bird conservation. Every BirdLog purchase you make directly supports the eBird project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. We think they’re worth it—now and for the future of birds and their habitats.

This version includes the full worldwide eBird taxonomy. Our North American version, called BirdLog North America or BirdLog NA is available for birders who want just North American coverage. The advantage of the regional versions compared to the world version is that the lists are smaller and slightly faster because they do not need to juggle the full worldwide taxonomy, and because they offer a much shorter default list for use when creating a checklist offline.

    I have made this my normal part of my birding work flow. I have my phone with me always, and as long as I can get a data capable signal (but need to remember that that is not always available) then this works well. Have used it in multiple countries multiple continents, and it can work

    Love using this app. My only suggestion to the developers would be to allow Android users the option to submit an offline checklist based on a recent location rather than using the entire database of birds, similar to the IOS model. Unfortunately I've been unsuccessful in recording species when I don't have GPS while in third world countries (or any country outside of the US really) because the ap

    Can't find blue waxbill or any of its other names. Why?!

    Freezes on opening, on the "checking database version" screen. Tried many reinstalls with current and older versions. Contacted developpers, and they said it wasn't worth the effort to ensure compatibility with all Android phones. They offered me my money back but then never followed through.

    This app has totally changed the way I bird. I used to take pad and pen out into the field and transfer the data onto ebird when I got home. This could sometimes be very laborious, especially on a long birding vacation where I could have 20 checklists or more. This app allows me to easily keep up with checklists on the go and saves a lot if time. The few minor problems it has have never caused me
