Bird Counter allows you to create count lists of birds and then click the birds name to add a count to it, and record the GPS location. Once you've finished your counting you can then email the exported files in both CSV and KML format for Google Maps by using the export options, either all the sightings. Or just the sightings in a list.
For example, you could create a list called PARK, GARDEN or RSPB Marshside, then assign birds (from a list of all birds recorded in the British Isles), that you would expect to see in that area.
Select the Tick Sightings option to see your saved lists and click a previously created list to open it.
This will show you the list of birds you're hoping to see at this site. When you see or hear a bird. Just click the name, and the counter next to it's name will increased by 1, and record also it's GPS location (if you have GPS enabled and available on your phone). You will know when the GPS is ready to start recording locations when you see the satellite icon in the top left of the list form.
This is a simple version of my Nature Log application that is also available in the Google Play Store, and is an excellent tool for monitoring counts of birds and then mapping them afterwards.
Any questions, or support issues, please email me at email@example.com
The application consists of a sorted list where the user can keep track of observations.
It also contains a small details page for each species where family and latin name is visible. The user may add date and own notes.
The user is able to export the list as a .csv format document easily edited in Excel or other editor.
Hash: Birds, ornithology
For many people bird watching is an opportunity to feel close to nature. They also enjoy the relaxation and peacefulness by watching birds. Some birders, however, will travel long distances just to see a rare bird.
Most birders start out by watching and attracting birds to their own backyards. Bird feeding can benefit birds and also provide great bird watching. You can attract a variety of interesting birds to your yard by selecting and offering the right kinds of food. The common types of food offered in bird feeding are seeds, nectar, suet and fruit. Early morning is the best time for bird watching since many birds are then searching most actively for food.
Once you start feeding birds, you'll probably want to identify who is coming to visit. Equipment used for birding includes binoculars, a blank notebook, and one or more good field guides.
Field guides are books with pictures and descriptions of the birds. A field guide shows birds of just one country, or one region of a country, or one habitat.
Binoculars are described by two numbers: 8x32 for example. The first number tells you the magnification power of the binoculars. The second tells you the size of the objective lens at the end of the binoculars in millimeters. Most bird watchers think that 7 or 8 power is about right for most birding.
The next step is to broaden your birding experience beyond your own backyard. Plan a trip to a bird sanctuary, national park and other locations where you can see birds in large numbers. Wherever you go, never harm the birds and always respect other birders.
And don't forget to join a local birding club. Clubs organize field trips, show films of good bird watching destinations and some of them are involved in local environmental projects. Also visit your local library and check out books on birds and ornithology.
