As well as being a highly useful portable field guide, Birder also provides a means to create and maintain complete field trip data.

Locate birds quickly using 'Quick ID', filtering possible species by colour, size, habitat and general shape. You can also narrow down identification possibilities using the 'Similar' species option, that will detail often mistaken species.
