Ornithology has become extremely popular over the last few years. This may sound like a way of bird watchers trying to make their pastime seem more glamorous or even perhaps draw a few more people to their cause. However, it is actually very much the opposite and traditional bird watchers are very much wary of the influx of new blood. It is not so much the fact that people now suddenly want to get their binoculars out and view birds that is the problem, and in fact the majority would welcome a new ardent following for the pastime. Instead, it is the fact that the influx has put the pursuit into disrepute. That may sound somewhat hyperbolic, but there have even been recent cases of violent clashes between bird watchers as people desperately try to get the very best spots. This alone may be bad enough, but on top of this there have been cases of bird watchers faking photos to make their ability seem greater and their experience seem more exotic, whilst others have been criticised for harassing birds. As a result, those wishing to take their bird watching binoculars out to the best spots are being respectfully asked to follow a code of etiquette published recently and endorsed by the RSPB. The reason those taking part in such activities need bird watching binoculars is that getting too close to the birds is likely to scare them away, ruining the experience for other keen ornithologists and potentially being detrimental to wildlife in general. So if you want to start up bird watching, there is very little stopping you getting out your binoculars and indulging in a pastime that is positively soaring in popularity. Just make sure you know the right etiquette before you head out so as not to be a nuisance to the animals themselves or others wanting to see as many interesting birds as they can.

This is one of a series of Birding Checklist applications for Android mobile phones and tablets. There are applications for Australia, New Zealand, United States (excluding Mexico and South America), Western Palearctic (UK and Europe), Norfolk and Lord Howe Island, and Ecuador/Peru/Bolivia.
PHOTOS & SOUNDS are downloaded separately, and must be manually installed via your PC. Please check the Readme file at this download website so you know how to do this. The photos and sounds are NOT included in the download package from the Android market.
Please see support website https://sites.google.com/site/birdingchecklists/ if you have difficulties downloading and installing the photos and sounds.
WP/UK download website:
Western Palearctic (includes UK) – 924 species and 1188 subspecies
These applications include basic bird identification information, and are NOT intended to replace a field guide. It is expected that users will have good familiarity with the birds they are seeing, and will use this application for:
a. Logging bird sightings (with GPS co-ordinates if your phone has a GPS)
b. Uploading your sightings to eBird (or similar PC or online recording system)
c. Maintaining your Lifelist
Full versions have the following features:
- complete listing of all bird species and subspecies (where known)
- searching and filtering of the bird list
- statistics and record of your personal bird Lifelist
- current tick list (birds you have seen today or during a short field trip)
- quick lists for customised bird listings for locations your frequently visit
- display of bird photos and bird calls on the SD card linked to the application (these must be manually downloaded separately)
- logging facilities including GPS location (if your phone has a GPS)
- export log file in eBird Import format for rapid loading of your sightings to eBird
- optional downloadable Rangemaps and extended text descriptions (incomplete but growing collection on external download site)
- help information
- play mp4 videos of birds stored in the photos folder on the SD card
- support for large screen 1280 x 800 tablets
Demo versions have reduced functionality:
- cannot save sighting logs or statistics
- will not display rangemaps or extended descriptions
- do not display ticklists for regions
- no GPS location display on Google maps
- no alternate language support
- no quicklists (custom filtering of bird lists for your location)
- no mp4 video support
You can easily add your own resources files – the application places no restriction on this but very large numbers of photos (many thousands) may slow down the application.
