  1. Summary report showing what species you have seen each year

    Could work a bit like the checklist report in that all species could be listed on the left and then years across the top. In each year the species has been seen the little box could be coloured in and in the years the species wasn't seen it would just be the box outline. Scroll down to see the whole list of species, scroll across to see all years. Filters could include years so you could select a start and end year ie. 2010 to 2020 if you don't want to see 30+ years - another toggle could be to…

  2. Have icons for wildlife categories for ease of use to move between.

    When I’m using Birdjournal on my patches I record, along with birds, butterflies, bee’s, dragonflies etc. It would be easier to have at least an icon to go to your prefer home category. If you could have a couple other icons that we make life easier and quicker to move between categories.

  3. Provide a feature to remove unnecessary local names from taxonomies

    When adding custom taxonomy, users have often entered the full scientific name, as the English name, where no English name was available.

    Whilst this is totally fine, it's not required. Bird Journal will automatically use the full scientific name in place of the English (or other language specific) name.

    This suggestion is to add a feature that can automatically remove unnecessary local names from a taxonomy. Where the local name matches the full scientific name, it can be safely removed.

    We could probably look to add a tools button within the taxonomy editor, which has this on a drop-down menu,…

  4. Change the pin colour

    Any chance of giving us the option of changing the individual pin colours please? Currently the blue pins don’t show up very well against either the outdoors or satellite maps. Red would be better! Thanks

  5. Species count summaries

    On Windows version summarise the number of observations and give a total count for multiple observations of a species in one entry. Could be indented or highlighted on a line either above or at end of that species series of entries. This would bring the Windows version in line with what already occurs in Android and would help in survey work.

  6. Import CSV - files downloaded from sites : Waarneming.nl / Waarnemingen.be / Observation.org into Birdjournal

    At this moment it isn't possible to import the CSV - files downloaded from the websites : Waarneming.nl / Waarnemingen.be / Observation.org

  7. Enable a filter that enable the user to create a list of the birds not seen. A target list to help find in year and life targets.

    It’s really annoying towards the end of the year trying to hit an annual target. This year I wanted to break 200 birds (in my case seen by bike or walking from home). For the last month of the year it would have been really helpful to create a tick list of target birds. Sure this would help others !

  8. Species only Heard are included in the overall species list, it would be helpful to have a settings option to exclude or include these.

    Many birders want to record species they have heard, but do not include them their overall species list.

    It would improve the product incredibly to have a setting to include/exclude species which have only been heard from the Species summary/list.

  11. Allow searching/filtering of observations within an individual entry.

    Sometimes you may need to edit an entry and find a specific species to make an amendment. Perhaps if you've noticed you entered the count incorrectly or selected the wrong sub species etc for example. If there are a number of species in the entry it can be quite tedious to scroll through them all to find the one you need to amend.

    A search bar above the observations panel would make it great just to type a few letters and find the entry you need in much the same way filtering works on the main pages.

    Cheers

  13. Create locations that are dynamic

    I live at Lake Tahoe. I like to track the birds I have seen in the whole basin, but that currently isn’t possible as Lake Tahoe covers two states. I want to keep my lists for each state separate, but also be able to view the birds I have seen at Lake Tahoe as one list instead of as the California side and the Nevada side. So, can you create locations that are viewed in the current hierarchy as well as being able to view sightings from two different locations as one list as desired?

  14. Auto-create locations and species that don't exist

    If you enter a location or species name that doesn't exist, Bird Journal should warn that a new location / species will be created, but create them automatically.

    This would streamline the experience when adding observations for new locations and new species.

    Ideally, taxonomies that are not yet installed, should be searched first for species entered, and auto-install the required taxonomy.

  15. iOS App

    Allow ability to dig down into filtered searches in app and give correct number of sightings of species based on the filter) (eg show the correct number of sightings of species 'A' in location 'B' [not the total number worldwide] and allow drill down to see detail of the sightings of Species A at Location B.)

  16. Make porting of records from one taxonomy to an updated one easier.

    Just porting my records over from my original Mammals of the UK taxonomy to the new Mammals of the United Kingdom and Ireland checklist from the World Mammals taxonomy and have spotted something that might be a useful change to implement.

    On the replace species tool, there are radio buttons to select common or scientific.

    It would be useful to have these stay as a previous selection, so they don't have to be re-selected each time (a total of 6 key-strokes if you want to use scientific names for both sides of the swap).

  17. Entry property is required

    When you create custom entry properties it would be good to force them to be required or not. It is very easy when you start listing in a new entry to forget to enter a property. If this was required when you start a new entry (or not) that would make life much easier and allow this customization to work as intended.

  18. Allow the Muscovy Duck in Birds of bermuda

    I have seen a group of Muscovy ducks in an Audubon Society réserve in Sandys Bermuda.
    I do not appear to be able to Solent them, even in Birds of Mexico

  19. Create a link between Apple voice memos and Bird Journal

    It would be great to record your records by voice rather than having to have your head down tapping away on your phone. A simple voice message which creates the record using all the current geo tagging as the message is recorded and then transposing it into the BJ entry for that record. It would mean that I can simply log an entry without having to tap in each element.

  20. Allow the import of Song Recordings not just Photos

    I love that you can upload photos of species taken but I would also like to be able to add mp3 tracks of bird songs I have recording during my observations.
