This is a powerful app for helping you track your birds from anywhere and anytime using your Android device. This is not a field guide for identification but rather a way to track and document your birding experiences.
Type in a name of a bird and your GPS can pinpoint your location or you can type in any location name you want to use such as a local address or anything that helps you remember where the sighting was.
From your daily or casual list called 'My Birds List' or your 'Life List', you can sort your information for any time period you choose. Simply select the dates and create your own custom time period.
Use the "Life List" feature to keep a running list of all the birds that you have seen over your lifetime.
The best new feature of all is that you can save and backup your bird data to your home computer. You can use this data to restore your information to your Happy Birding Journal app if you should lose your Android device or get a new one. You can also use this information on your computer in a spreadsheet file. OpenOffice.org and LibreOffice have good free spreadsheet readers.
This is a great tool for the beginner birder or the seasoned bird watcher.
