"Comprehensive Excellence! I find Birder’s Diary an exceptionally versatile program for birders and other naturalists. After 20 years of trying various programs, I have finally found the ‘right solution’. Sightings from birding, scuba, herp, butterfly and dragonfly trips now have a common home as I use Birder’s Diary to easily record sightings for birds, mammals, reptiles, fishes, insects and more. I love the taxonomy tool, which is outstanding for the naturalist who wants to learn from and record more of their outdoor experience. Bells and whistles aside, my favorite aspect of the program is the service I have experienced from the super-responsive ‘can do’ support team. Whether it was a complex data conversion of years of old bird records or getting help for a reporting need, the Birder’s Diary support team showed me the way very quickly."

"Just thought I would email you and say thanks for an awesome bit of software. I have told many people asking about software, that Birder’s Diary is the way to go. Since I’ve been doing so much travelling lately (13 countries last year!), I have really been using Birder’s Diary to keep track of my bird sightings, and really getting to grips with its capabilities. The software is great and makes life so much easier than keeping everything on excel spreadsheets and bits of paper like I used to!" Brent, PhD/Ornithology, Wrybill Birding Tours, NZ - read more...
