  1. Provide separate checklists for Eastern and Western North America

    I like to use paper checklists in the field where cellular service is iffy. The full North American checklist prints out at 27 pages. Generating East and West checklists would require that North American birds be regionally tagged in the database, and they would need to have more than one region as there is overlap for some birds that appear in both regions.

  2. Make the general web page more informative

    Have on your main web page about Bird Journal a link to e.g. all the countries etc that are covered, all the wildlife groups that you have covered etc. . In other words, make the page more informative????

  3. On mobile app, add letters to help navigage the subscriber's species list

    On the mobile app, the search bar on the right for the Add species list has letters that makes it easier to jump to the area where the species you are looking for is. The search bar for the subscriber's own species list only has dots, and you need to estimate the distance down the line to jump to the right area. Better still, if you could enable to type in letters to more accurately help with the search this would be awsome!

  5. Allow 'in the field changes to species' Position/Time on iPhone/Android

    Having just returned from Brazil I had several occasions where I inadvertently added the wrong bird species in using live position/time. Later in the day(s) I was informed of the errors, and whilst I could add in the correct species for that day I could not remove the other 'incorrect' species in the field as I would loose the time/position it was seen to add to the correct species with the same position/time. It would be REALLY helpful to have the ability to 'modify in the field' the species you initially entered and replace it correctly without having to add…

  6. Location Photo

    The ability to enter a photo when generating a new location. This will allow the photo to be loaded when you enter the location details in your observations.

  7. Change GeoTag default setting to OS Map Grid Reference

    When I input records of visits to me BBS 1-Km square I prefer to use an OS Map Grid Reference to the co-ordinates

  9. Enter a checklist for Birds Of Florida or even the USA.

    Is it possible to have a Florida specific or USA list rather than using the whole world list?

  10. Re-postition species name within an entry

    When you select entries and then on a specific entry, consider having the species name at the top (rather than it saying 'Entry' above where that date etc is located. You can view the species name more easily and also with the species name at the bottom currently, the text is too cramped and is overexposed on top of species count and Good view etc.

  12. Revert to v4 photo thumbnails displayed by month

    In v5 you can only see a narrow strip of photo thumbnails on LH side. In previous versions, it was possible to see all the photos for a relevant month at once and the ability to scroll through many rows of thumbnails at a time. Thus; you can see at a glance the quality birds you saw (or not) that month: or, just scroll through the years and reminisce ..

  14. Show species counts on entry summary screen for non-bird species

    As well as birds, I also record butterflies, moths and mammals in the journal. For entries containing no bird species the words '0 bird species' give no indication of what is recorded within the entry. Could it be modified to show what has actually been recorded? - eg. 3 bird, 2 butterfly, 1 mammal species? Or 0 bird, 8 butterfly species?

  16. Better Location Support

    One of the things that seems strange to me about Bird Journal is that notating locations seems incredibly tedious, perhaps I'm missing something, but when you add a new entry and you want to put a location, it would be great if this field synced with Google Maps and found the location as you typed it in. Instead I actually have to manually add each location I go to in a completely separate area first? This seems like an incredibly archaic interface.

  17. Group entry - this is a modification on the shared entry but it works as a top down rather than bottom up. A push rather than pull.

    A modification of shared entry but in a push fashion. All the members of a group that want to participate share their email addressed with the leader. As the data is entered it becomes available to those who shared their information for them to choose to pull it down. It is a one-off and potentially more secure and a good selling point should tour companies go this way.

  18. Date picker looks backwards (not forwards)

    On the date picker, when you click on the date, it brings up a screen that has 3 1/2 years of months making it easier to select a date but the dates start on the current year and go forwards 3 1/2 years.

    I can't imagine there would be any requirement to add sightings in the future. At the moment I have to scroll backwards with my mouse wheel which is only a small problem but it would speed the input up, and makes sense, to have the current year and the previous 3 1/2 years to pick from (rather…

  19. Make no. of individuals an easy edit to a saved entry on the mobile app.

    To save time in the field I usually put 'observed', adding no. of individuals by editing the entry on the Mac later at home. If I could access just my entry species list on the app I'd be able to do this at the conclusion of each survey.

  20. Printing data

    Have the means of printing a report/list of sightings to paper via a word doc or rtf that is more economical with paper more like Avisys used to do.
