This is a powerful application for helping you track your birds from anywhere and any time using your Android device. This is not a field guide for identification but rather a way to track your birding and share your experiences with other Happy Birding Journal users.
Start typing in a name of a bird and the autocomplete will suggest bird names for you.
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.
You can change checklists for different locations. Say you live in a certain state and you travel to another for business or vacation. You can change the checklist to that state and sort your information to record that period of time separately. Then when you get back home, save your checklist, then simply change back to your regular checklist.
From your daily or casual list called 'My Journal' or your 'Life List', you can sort your information for any time period you choose.
Want to know what birds were seen on a certain day or at a certain location? Check out the observations of other birders in Shared Birds.
You can share your birding information with other Happy Birding Journal users around the world to help them pinpoint great places for finding interesting or unique birds and you can see what birds other users are finding with the Share feature.('My Journal' -> tap an entry -> select 'SHARE')
Use the "Life List" feature to keep a running list of all the birds that you have seen over your lifetime.
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.
This is a great tool for the beginner birder or the seasoned bird watcher.
