About this app

eBird Mobile makes it easy to record the birds you see in the field, and seamlessly link these observations with eBird--a global online database of bird records used by hundreds of thousands of birders around the world. This free resource makes it easy to keep track of what you see, while making your data openly available for scientific research, education, and conservation. eBird Mobile is the only app that passes information directly from the Android device to your eBird account on the web.

- Real-time feedback on whether a sighting is rare in the area.
- Quick entry tools to make note-taking faster than ever before.

The new interface looks terrible. They took what was an aesthetically pleasing thing to look at and as with the Merlin app update, turned it into a super bland page that essentially looks blank with a little text. please get a new design team that understands how to make things look better, not worse. oversimplification is destroying everything. The functionality still seems to work, but the new look ain't it.

It's a nice idea, but it's too complicated for a simple life list. I just want something that let's me search a database by bird and fill in the rest manually. I don't need timers and checklists. Also, it should just be part of the Merlin app, especially since the bird packs have to be downloaded twice (and eBird doesn't have an option for all of North America, just each state).
