With Birda, all the sightings you log automatically feed into a ton of other features in the app from life lists to challenges, earning you badges and helping to achieve your goals. Check out the data you can log with every sighting below:
If you are logging your sightings as part of a session you’ll also see:
No matter how you log your bird sightings, you can import and sync your data with Birda. Your data will count towards challenges and life lists so you can get off to a flying start.

and more coming soon…
When you add a sighting you’ll see a dynamically generated list of birds based on the location of the sighting, so common birds at the top and less likely ones at the bottom. Not only does this speed up and simplify things when you’re adding a sighting, it also improves the quality of data we provide to the scientific community. A win for everyone.
No service? No problem. In fact, we’re a little bit jealous that you’re birdwatching somewhere off-grid. Offline logging still allows you to record your sightings or enjoy a birding session using the Birda app.
Birda is proud to share all the sightings data with the GBIF (Global Biodiversity Information Facility), an international network and data infrastructure that provides open access to data about all types of life on Earth. So the more you log, the more our planet benefits. Simple as that.
