Birding Life List

I received iBird Explorer Pro to put on the iPod Touch 4th Generation for my Mother’s Day gift this week. It took a while to figure out how to use it easily – I had to read quite a few tutorials – but I have the hang of it now. So much so – that now I have Favorite Lists created.

I have two going – Life List and May List – I went page by page through my Sibley Book – Here’s my  list so far. Not a world class ornithologist by any  means – but humble and excited to see new birds – Yes.

Here is my list created on iBird Explorer Pro:

  1. Great tool! I really liked seeing your life list and all the different birds you have observed. I have been working on my own list slowly as I organize my own nature journal, not an easy task. I finally broke it down by local and then specific habitats like Yosemite, Sonora Desert, etc. It makes it much easier to manage the list.

    I love lists and now I wish I had a gadget to put iBirds on. 🙂

I love to hear from my readers, I appreciate comments!
