Publisher Description

NZ Birding Checklist full version

This is one of a series of Birding Checklist applications for Android mobile phones and tablets. There are applications for Australia, New Zealand, United States (excluding Mexico and South America), Western Palearctic (UK and Europe), the Middle East, Pacific Islands, South Africa, and Ecuador/Peru/Bolivia.

PHOTOS & SOUNDS are downloaded separately, and must be manually installed via your PC. Please check the Readme file at this download website so you know how to do this. The photos and sounds are NOT included in the download package from the Android market. It is recommended that you test the download and install process with the demo version first, then upgrade to the full version when you have confirmed that it is working.

*** If you are having problems please email me (contact details in the About window in the application). I am unable to respond to comments or questions in the market reviews.

NZ Download website:

NZ and Norfolk Island – 396 species and 67 subspecies

These applications include basic bird identification information, and are NOT intended to replace a field guide. It is expected that users will have good familiarity with the birds they are seeing, and will use this application for:

a. Logging bird sightings (with GPS co-ordinates if your phone has a GPS)

b. Uploading your sightings to eBird (or similar PC or online recording system)

c. Maintaining your Lifelist

Full versions have the following features:

- complete listing of all bird species and subspecies (where known)

- searching and filtering of the bird list

- statistics and record of your personal bird Lifelist

- current tick list (birds you have seen today or during a short field trip)

- quick lists for customised bird listings for locations your frequently visit

- display of bird photos and bird calls on the SD card linked to the application (these must be manually downloaded separately)

- logging facilities including GPS location (if your phone has a GPS)

- export log file in eBird Import format for rapid loading of your sightings to eBird

- optional downloadable Rangemaps and extended text descriptions (incomplete but growing collection on external download site)

- help information

- play mp4 videos of birds stored in the photos folder on the SD card

- support for large screen 1280 x 800 tablets

Demo versions have reduced functionality (there is no longer a demo version of the NZ Birding Checklist:

- cannot save lifelist, sighting logs or statistics

- will not display rangemaps or extended descriptions

- do not display ticklists for regions

- no GPS location display on Google maps

- no alternate language support

- no quicklists (custom filtering of bird lists for your location)

- no mp4 video support

You can easily add your own resources files – the application places no restriction on this but very large numbers of photos (many thousands) may slow down the application.

Please contact me if you have any comments or suggestions, or corrections to the bird information.
